Youth in Crisis

"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future. "
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Supporting LGBTQ Youth

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) youth are dramatically over-represented in the homeless youth population.

Lighthouse is working to prevent and end LGBTQ youth homelessness in Hamilton County, Ohio, implementing strategies to make sure every LGBTQ youth has the housing, resources, and connections to thrive.

LGBTQ Advocate

Women Helping Women (WHW) shares their LGBTQ Advocate with Lighthouse. WHW provides prevention and crisis intervention and support services for survivors of dating violence, sexual violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Their LGBTQ Advocate works at the Lighthouse Sheakley Center for Youth and other community sites. To connect with the LGBTQ Advocate, you can call or text Women Helping Women, (513) 381-5610.
