“This center protects LGBT Youth from
the harms of homelessness and empowers them to reclaim their lives.
Each year the Ali Forney Center provides care for over 1,200 youth
who are rejected by their family due to their LGBT identity. AFC

more importantly, AFC provides these youth with the love and support
they are denied by their families. Because everyone deserves to be
loved and everyone deserves a home,” she added.
