Nearly fifty percent of homeless youth in Kansas City are LGBTQ. We’re on a mission to change that.

We are a LGBTQ-specific transitional and rapid re-housing program. We seek to address the core problems causing LGBTQ homelessness by providing a community first and housing plus approach.

 Transitional Housing

 Transitional housing is a short term housing program that is designed to best support specific segments of the homeless population, including working homeless people who are earning too little money to afford long-term housing.

Rapid Re-Housing

Rapid Re-housing is designed to serve those who could reasonably be approved for a lease, but are financially unable to afford the cost of living. Our program assist with those expenses.

We are the first of our kind in Kansas City.

This is the first program dedicated to serving specifically the LGBTQ community and as such we approach the problem from a different angle. We equip LGBTQ people and their families with the tools and the knowledge necessary to reach their goals of stable and sustainable housing.
