Help LGBT Homeless Youth Center Destroyed by Hurricane Sandy

Among the lives and property tragically lost as a result of Hurricane Sandy was the Ali Forney Center’s drop-in center for LGBT youth in Manhattan. The center was a place where many homeless LGBT youth in New York City were able to go for food, showers, clothing, medical care, HIV testing and treatment and substance abuse services.

Learn more about the Ali Forney Story by watching this video.

To help this organization continue making a difference in the lives of homeless LGBT youth, you can text GLAAD to 80888 through November 8 and give $10 to the Ali Forney Center.

You can also make a larger contribution through the Ali Forney Center’s website.
