While many of us were able to stay at home during these uncertain times, thousands of teenagers across the globe were forced out of their safe spaces due to their sexuality or gender identity. Whether this involved going “back in the closet” or being forced out of their homes, LGBTQ youth has been hit hard by the pandemic.
American Modern PRIDE has been a proud supporter of Lighthouse Youth & Family Services for years, and we hope you are able to contribute to their continued work. Efforts include the Host Home Program, which matches LGBTQ young adults in need of housing with volunteers in the community. Those volunteer hosts open their heart and home to provide housing, food, and mentorship to help the young adult achieve their goals.
Lighthouse also provides housing and food services to youth and families facing housing uncertainty. They are able to continue this assistance during the pandemic, and could greatly use monetary funds to continue providing food and necessities. Your efforts can also be supported by American Modern’s matching gift program, so donate today!
