Homelessness & Housing programs at Brooklyn Community Pride Center


Homelessness & Housing

The Issue:

LGBTQ+ youth comprise up to 40% of the homeless youth population in NYC or about 1,600. 62% of them have considered or attempted suicide. When forced to survive on the streets without shelter, youths are subjected to significant levels of violence and trauma creating and exacerbating mental health issues.

Our Solution:

In addition to our year-round Pride Pantry offering free toiletries, clothing and more for people experiencing homelessness, we are in discussions with community partners to provider robust homeless services by 2025 with wrap-around support from our programs for social isolation, workforce development, immigration, and health and wellness.
