This fundraiser’s success is essential as it allows us to continue the following:
- Renting a safe-space center which ables us to offer 6 monthly confidential peer support groups for LGBTQIA+ adults and youth
- A food pantry and toiletries for individuals in need.
- Our “Closet of Change” consisting of clothing, makeup, chest binders, wigs, and more to assist individuals with gender exploration and affirmation.
- Provide inclusion training to area organizations and businesses so their staff is aware of proper treatment and how to be affirming of LGBTQIA+ identities. We offer this service free to Direct Services.
- Working with many other organizations in the area to support their efforts and attend their events to raise visibility of the LGBTQIA+ population in the Mahoning Valley.
- Inclusive events throughout the year for LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies, including Pride in the Valley!
