Dear Community Partners & Allies,
The Alliance for GLBTQ Youth is committed to ending lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) youth homelessness in Miami-Dade County. We know that in part, success to meeting this goal is linked to data. We are proud of the valiant community effort (iCount – point in time census of unaccompanied homeless youth) to shift this information void, but the plight of youth experiencing homelessness continues. And as a community we can do more!
As a partner of The Forty to None Network and in commitment to LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness, we are asking everyone that works with homeless youth to please complete 2014 Service Provider Survey. Help us ensure that data from our communities is included in this imperative, national research.
Forty to None Project
In 2012 you helped us get the word out about our Serving Our Youthsurvey. We just released our second iteration of the survey, a continuing climate study that will allow us to better address the issue of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth homelessness, understand the needs of service providers related to working with these youth, and scale solutions to meet those needs. The survey is conducted in partnership with the Palette Fund and the Williams Institute at UCLA.
Do you or someone you know work with a program that serves youth experiencing homelessness? We’d love to hear from you! The survey can be accessed here.
Thank you on behalf of all our youth for completing or forwarding the survey! Together we can end their experience of homelessness.
