Committed to saving the lives of LGBTQ young people, the center has grown to become the largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youths in the country. They assist nearly 1,400 youths per year through a 24-hour drop-in center which provides over 70,000 meals annually, medical and mental health services through an on-site clinic, and a scattered housing site program.
