We are ready to buy our home!
We have our sights set on foreclosed properties in Austin, South Shore & Garfield Park, and need your help to raise the remaining $25,000 needed to secure our space. With your support, we will purchase our home by Fall of this year, and begin housing young people by winter.
Record low temperatures in Chicago this winter have underscored the need for housing, resulting in 30 cold-related deaths. Only a handful of shelters exist to meet the overwhelming demand, and LGBTQ youth often face violence within the shelter system. Lack of familial support and institutional resources puts LGBTQ youth at greater risk for violence, suicide and chronic homelessness.
Your contribution to this campaign will ensure that we are able to purchase our home and begin providing services to LGBTQ youth. Everyone deserves a safe and stable home so they can ground themselves and thrive!
