January 2021 Campaign: #SafeHomeWithARMY
Start the year right by making a difference in the lives of the LGBTQ+ youth! For the January campaign, One In An ARMY is supporting Lost-n-Found Youth in eliminating homelessness among the young LGBTQ+ community.
About Lost-n-Found Youth
Founded in November 2011, Lost-n-Found Youth is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating homelessness for all LGBTQ+ youth between the age of 13 and 25 by providing them with the skills and support needed to live independently. They envision a world where all youth feel safe and supported to live and love authentically.
Lost-n-Found Youth was started by a group of activists who were turned away when attempting to place queer youth into local shelters and youth aid programs. These activists resolved that something needed to be done to address the immediate need. They called a public town hall meeting and invited these local homeless youth support agencies to express outrage and determine what resources existed. The meeting made clear that no organization was specifically actively working to take LGBTQ+ homeless youth off the street. Up until this year, Lost-n-Found Youth ensures that the physical and mental needs of the LGBTQ+ youth are met.
According to Lost-n-Found Youth, more than 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ+ and this disparity in the homeless youth population continues to grow. After coming out, most young people often lose ties with families, friends, and other people in their lives. Then they also continue to face discrimination and abuse.
One In An ARMY aims to raise funds to help fund Lost-n-Found Youth’s residential program. They have a 30-day emergency bed program and a transitional home for the homeless LGBTQ+ youth.
Donating and spreading the word about the January campaign will make a huge difference to the Lost-n-Found Youth and the homeless LGBTQ+ youth. Let’s remind the young LGBTQ+ community that their existence in this world matters!
