The COVID-19 outbreak has left vulnerable populations devastated, including the LGBTQ+ homeless population. Housing instability is already a major issue in New York City, but with the COVID-19 outbreak, it has put even more of a strain on social services and has left thousands of homeless and LGBTQ+ who rely on city services and nonprofit organizations desperate because of facilities closing, underfunding, and lack of sources.
The Ali Forney center is an organization that provides vital resources to LGBTQ+ homeless folx where the city cannot compensate. There is not enough public knowledge, awareness or sensitivity to the struggles that LGBTQ+ homeless folx face because of discrimination such as racism, homophobia and ableism and the intersectionality of these issues. The Ali Forney center does amazing outreach, emergency housing, provides health services and many other amazing and essential programs.
Please consider donating what you can to help the Ali Forney center life-saving resources during a time of great need. Every dollar counts.
