Join members of Lost-n-Found Youth and JustUs ATL today at Charis Books & More to discuss what options are available to homeless LGBTQ youth in Atlanta.
The discussion is set for 7:30-9 p.m. at Charis in Little Five Points and is open to the public.
Lost-n-Found Youth was formed late last year to provide emergency shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth — those who were on the streets and needed a bed and shelter immediately. The issue the organization is facing now, however, is that it does not have enough room to house all the youth in need, according to organizers.
JustUs ATL is a youth-led organization that was formed earlier this year as an organization that is completely run and managed by young people ages 13-28.
From the Facebook invite for tonight's event:
Join us for a discussion about the current state of resources and options for LGBTQ young people in Atlanta co-sponsored by members of Lost-n-Found Youth and JustUsATL. Bring your questions, ideas, feedback to help build better networks of support for Atlanta's homeless LGBTQ youth. Young people who are currently or formerly homeless or in unstable or precarious living situations are especially encouraged to participate.
