Bridge counselors are trained to provide specialized support for LGBTQ youth.

Over the past decade, our counselors have seen an increase in LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness. 25% of our youth identify as LGBTQ.

At our table, staff connected with youth and community members. Youth and allies were able to learn more about the programs and resources available at Bridge Over Troubled Waters.
