Where do LGBTQ+ youth go when they are kicked out of their homes and have no place to go? Unfortunately, many go to the streets where they are exposed to even more victimization and harassment. The perils include criminal behavior, potential HIV from unprotected sex or drug use, and even the risk of death to young people who are in the wrong place or are unable to cope with life “on the street.”
Zebra Coalition® provides LGBTQ+ youth ages 18-24 who are homeless and have been rejected by their families with short-term living. Providing the opportunity to practice daily living skills, our housing program prepares youth to make a successful transition to become productive, independent and contributing members of our community. Services are outlined by each youth’s individualized case plan.
