SafePlace2BToo – LGBTQ

Family Resources, Inc. provides a safe haven for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ) youth where they will be accepted for who they are and where they are in their life development.

Our programs incorporate a philosophy of trauma informed care, positive youth development and harm reduction that help youth develop trusting relationships with staff and the self-awareness and confidence necessary to reach their goals.

Our residential program is staffed 24 hours per day, seven days a week with highly trained staff. We offer crisis intervention, group and individual counseling, comprehensive sex education, recreation, case management, life skills training and other services designed to help youth improve self-image, increase resiliency, model good communication skills, deter anti-social and risk-taking behavior, teach independent living skills and increase social connections.

We have six beds in the LGBTQ program. As with our other transitional living and maternal group home programs, we focus on teaching life skills and preparing youth for independent living. When they turn 18, Family Resources will assist them in locating safe and stable living arrangements. An aftercare case manager will make home visits and will maintain contact for at least a year to provide support, referrals, advocacy and counseling to youth living in the community after leaving the transitional living facility.

Youth must voluntarily apply to the program, be 16 or 17 years old, identify as LGBTQ, not actively using illegal substances and must not have untreated mental health issues. Once accepted into the program, youth must attend school regularly and/or find employment, participate in weekly LGBTQ Youth Groups and Life Skills Groups.

PROGRAM GOALS

Our goals at Family Resources include increasing the safety, well-being and permanent connections for LGBTQ youth. Additionally, our focus is on improving the life skills, educational and vocational knowledge base to assist youth in making a successful transition to self-sufficiency.

Community Based Services

Youth aged 18-22 who demonstrate a strong desire and ability to move toward self-sufficiency and independent living while in our TLP may be eligible for apartment housing with financial assistance for rent and utilities for a determined length of time. In addition, youth will have access to case management services specifically tailored to their unique needs and goals.
