Attention Homes has always been responsive to the needs of youth experiencing crises in our community. We envision a world in which every young person has a safe place to live and the attention they need.
In 2019, Attention Homes Saw: 120 youth who were formerly in foster care and aged out of the system; 169 LGBTQ+ youth who stated family rejection as their reason for seeking shelter; 312 youth who reported family breakup as their reason for seeking shelter.
In addition to safe shelter, youth in this program work with a Case Manager to develop goals around education, housing, employment, healthcare, family reunification, and more.
On #GiveOUTDay, the only national day of giving for the LGBTQ+ community, we are asking you to join our mission to make causes of youth homeless rare, brief, and non-recurring. With a mission like this, every contribution is critical.
