A volunteer task force formed to come up with a contingency plan for those utilizing YouthPride's services should the LGBT organization close released a detail plan Monday, Feb. 20, after members issued a statement saying they now consider the agency closed after it received no response from Board President Jordan Myers about his directive from last week to dissolve the agency on Friday, Feb. 17.
YouthPride Executive Director Terence McPhaul, however, told the GA Voice the agency remains open.
For youth seeking counseling services, information on support groups and HIV testing, these options have been made available from the task force:
CHRIS Kids Counseling Center
Odyssey Counseling Center
National suicide hotlines:
St. Mark United Methodist Church will host the support groups.
All other support groups:
Charlie Bright, LPC
Stephanie K. Swann, PhD, LCSW
Tana Hall, LPC
AID Atlanta will provide testing at its location.
