Education, Housing, Legal Services, and Medical services are all offered.  Below there are more details on each.

LGBT youth who don’t feel safe or welcome in traditional high schools can finish their education in our charter high school and we help homeless LGBT youth earn their GED. We also offer adults the opportunity to develop new skills and realize their potential through personal enrichment courses, workshops and experiences.

 And by providing affordable meeting and event space for LGBT groups, clubs and organizations, we’re helping to foster the growth and strength of the entire LGBT community.
