About The Center
Support for foster families and resources to help current and former foster youth develop independent living skills. Clinical, institutional and field support services for youth who are justice involved or at risk of justice involvement. School-based services increasing awareness, promoting conversations and inspiring connections to prevent suicide. Services to create a community of adoptive families bringing hope and the tools necessary to provide safe, sensitive and lasting homes.
Most lesbian, gay, bisexual, LGB youth are happy and thrive during their adolescent years. Having a school that creates a safe and supportive learning environment for all students and having caring and accepting parents are especially important. Positive environments can help all youth achieve good grades and maintain good mental and physical health. However, some LGB youth are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience negative health and life outcomes.
