Anchor House is proud to join the LGBTQ community in celebrating the freedom to be themselves. We are committed to providing safe, inclusive, and affirming care while welcoming individuals of all backgrounds and sexual identity.
Did you know? According to Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, LGBTQ young people are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than non-LGBTQ.
Family conflict over sexual orientation or gender identity, aging out of the foster care system, poverty and conflict in the home are some big reasons LGBTQ youth experience homelessness.
Allies from outside the LGBTQ community can join in the celebration and show their support, listen and help educate.
