Housing For LGBTQIA+

Individuals

COMING SOON!

According to a recent study from Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, LGBTQ+ young people are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than non-LGBTQ+ youth.

 

Full Spectrum Community Outreach, Mahoning Valley’s only LGBTQ+ center, is working to build an inclusive Mahoning Valley where LGBTQ+ people thrive as healthy, equal and complete members of society. Our latest project is purchasing a house that would provide a safe space for members of the LGBTQ+ community.

 

Presently, The Mahoning Valley only has one homeless shelter that welcomes youths in the LGBTQ+ community, and they have a limited amount of beds. No homeless shelters in our area are inclusive of LGBTQ+ adults. Our goal is to purchase a four bedroom house in Youngstown, that will provide eight beds to the LGBTQ+ community who are experiencing homelessness.

 

This home will also serve as offices for Full Spectrum Community Outreach and will be used for support group meetings, and to provide non-perishable food, clothing and toiletries for those in need.

Because of COVID-19, all planned fundraisers for the purchase of the house have been postponed. In order for this much needed home to become a reality, we are reaching out to generous people in the area for donations.

Thank you for your consideration in such a worthwhile project.
