Support Sylvia's Place

Sylvia's Place is the starting point for New York City's LGBTQI youth in crisis. With as many as 10,000 LGBTQI homeless youth in New York City, there is a desperate need to provide safe haven for these young people, who in many cases have been turned out of their homes by their own families and who are at risk of discrimination, isolation and violent attack at other shelters. Integrating case management with mental health services while stressing the unique strengths and potential of each youth, MCCNY Homeless Youth Services has developed a proven method for serving LGBTQI youth in crisis.

But this precious community resource is in desperate need of support. The modest facility is in need of basic physical repairs, and in recent years, services have been cut back due to reductions in funding.

As part of an intensive leadership training program, the members of Leadership Journey 17 (LJ17) have committed to raising a minimum of $25,000 by February 15th. Your contribution will help us execute basic physical improvements and restore much needed services for this gravely at risk segment of our youth. Won't you please lend a hand?
