Life Skills & Housing Options for Young Adults 17-24

"It is hard living by myself, but with help, I'm figuring it all out."

BrightLife is the newest housing initiative at Lighthouse Youth and Family Services. The BrightLife staff works to connect homeless LGBTQ young adults ages 18-21 with immediate access to housing.

BrightLife is a housing program designed to give homeless LGBTQ young adults immediate access to permanent housing. The program is funded by a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services. It is a demonstration project to prove that immediate access to housing improves education, career, health, and mental health outcomes for LGBTQ homeless young adults.
