|YouthPride moves to house in West End, also home to Christian addiction ministry?|

YouthPride, the troubled Atlanta LGBT youth agency, has moved to a house located at 955 Washington Place in Atlanta’s West End neighborhood, according to its website. YouthPride was evicted from its Edgewood Avenue home on June 1 for non-payment of rent and posted a series of delayed openings before finally announcing the new address June 21.
Executive Director Terence McPhaul refused an interview June 21 at the new location. He and board members continue to decline interviews on the status of the organization, which has been mired in a financial and leadership crisis since December 2011.
Questions from GA Voice in the wake of the agency’s pleas for donations revealed the YouthPride board had not met in more than a year and did not have the five members required by the organization’s bylaws. Leaders now refuse to speak publicly about YouthPride, so whether the agency is now in compliance is not known.
The YouthPride website lists the agency’s hours as Monday through Friday, 3-8 p.m., and Saturday, 3-6 p.m.
Fulton County property tax records show 955 Washington Place is owned by Rodney K. Turner, who is pastor of Mount Vernon Baptist Church in Atlanta. Turner has a history of working with AIDS ministries and is founder of Product of the Power Ministry, Inc. , according to his online biography.
In non-profit corporation records filed with the Georgia Secretary of State in March, the ministry’s address is listed as 955 Washington Place. Product of the Power is dedicated to “a biblical approach to breaking through the power of sin and addiction,” according to its website.
