Today, I’m going to ask you to please consider donating to Lucie’s Place.
Lucie’s Place provides homeless LGBTQ young adults in Central Arkansas with safe living environments, job training and counseling services in order to ensure lifelong stability and success, and works to promote equality and acceptance for LGBTQ young adults.Did you know:
- Did you know:
- More than 30% of LGBTQ youth report at least one suicide attempt within the last year.*
- More than 50% of Transgender youth will have had at least one suicide attempt by their 20th birthday.*
- Youth suicides outnumber youth homicides.*
*Based on national statistics
Those of us who are parents…do you remember when you just found out you were pregnant? And people would ask “Do you want a boy or a girl?” and your answer was almost always the same “I don’t care, as long as it’s healthy.”
Funny how that changes for some people when their child is born and they discover said child is Trans or gay or queer. How easily parents fail their children by kicking them out of their homes, the one place they should always feel safe and loved.
Lucie’s Place helps fill an unfortunately necessary need. Please find it in in your heart to help these poor kids who in the process of finding themselves, lost the one thing that should never have been taken from them–unconditional love from their families.
