LGBTQ Residential Program
We offer the only residential program in New York City for young people in care who identify as LGBTQ. Our programs provide 24-hour care in a uniquely affirming and healing environment where all youth are welcome and encouraged to live authentically in all aspects of their lives.
We operate small home-like settings in Brooklyn and Queens that provide a safe, supportive and nurturing space for these youth as they strive for self-awareness and community, family and school acceptance. Every young person is treated with dignity and respect, and our staff is focused on meeting the unique needs of our youth.
We serve youth 15-21 who are currently in foster care and who come from all five boroughs of New York City, as well as other New York counties.
