Building Our Own Systems: Emergency Housing for LGBTQ+ Youth 18-24 in Louisiana
LGBTQ+ youth in Louisiana (and across the country) are significantly more likely than their cisgender and straight peers to experience homelessness. Many have been rejected by their families of origin due to their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Transgender youth and black LGBTQ+ youth experience homelessness at the highest rates within the community. Louisiana's social services landscape is limited in its capacity to provide services to people experiencing homelessness, especially LGBTQ+ people who may fear facing violence or discrimination at emergency shelters. This form is to collect information from individuals and families who are willing to provide a safe place for LGBTQ+ youth to stay on a short-term, intermediate-term, or long-term basis.

While we are specifically collecting information in order to make connections to adults who can serve as a resource for LGBTQ+ youth ages 18 and older, we recognize that there is still the risk of harm when providing referrals to young people who are experiencing homelessness. We take the safety of LGBTQ+ youth extremely seriously.
