Bloom House Youth Services is a 501c3 non-profit organization in Emporia, KS serving runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth and their families in our area. Many of the young people we see are LGBTQ+, as 40% of the homeless youth population is a member of the LGBTQ+ community while this community only makes up between 7-9% of the general population. Bloom House works with youth of all genders and sexual orientations of course, but as the LGBTQ+ community is a very vulnerable group of already vulnerable youth, and many of the youth we serve are looking for work to help them and their families attain stability, self sufficiency and safety - we knew we needed a list like this!
