Help fund LGBTQ youth table @ event

The Emery Awards are one of HMI's signature fundraising events of the year.  Our mission is to help LGBTQ youth attend the Emery Awards so they may experience the power of this evening and our community.  We need them to know they are part of our community and we care.  We want to celebrate, support and fund a future for our LGBTQ young people facing obstacles for life's most basic needs:  a safe environment, homelessness, food, education,  and most importantly love. 

Last December I joined the HMI board for a 9-year commitment to support young people who deserve a safe, supportive environment and a community in which to achieve their full potential. I am amazed at the amount of programs available to our LGBTQ that have been displaced, made to feel unsafe and more.  But these programs and support tools come at a cost.

The Hetrick-Martin Institute is the oldest and largest nonprofit agency created to serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth between the ages of 13 and 24.  Our After-School programs invite youth to explore the arts, culture, tutoring, job skills, and health issues—with an LGBTQ focus.  They are also about building a community and a safe environment for these young people to rebuild and strive to reach their full potential.

Every year thousands of young people come to HMI to access opportunities and supportive resources for building a better life.
