Youth Homeless Support

Find a Safe Space

Our Young Scholars program, a free support group for LGBTQ+ youth ages 14-21, helps with life skills, conquering fears, and learning to advocate for yourself. We meet Tuesdays from 4pm-6pm, at the Johnson Public Library located at 274 Main Street in Hackensack, NJ . Contact Adrienne at 845-591-6788 for more information about joining us.


Are you or someone you know an LGBTQ+ youth without housing? Are you couch surfing or out on the streets?
