Meeting the Needs of LGBTQ Homeless Youth
Upcoming webinar: Meeting the Needs of LGBTQ Homeless Youth
Monday, August 28th – 1:00-2:00 p.m. MST
The Ali Forney Center (AFC) is dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youth, providing services to homeless and street-based youth, including a drop-in center, mobile outreach, and emergency housing.
Their Peer Educator program is based on the recognition that homeless youth are more likely to trust outreach workers who have been formerly homeless themselves. In addition, their community outreach program is designed to help mental health providers serve LGBTQ youth in a more culturally-competent manner.
