L.A. Controller Ron Galperin released a map detailing free and local resources to help LGBTQ homeless youth throughout greater Los Angeles. The map below lists 143 organizations located in Los Angeles County that offer free housing, health resources, youth programs, education programs, scholarships, legal services, nutrition and more. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning persons who may be in danger of experiencing homelessness can find support through partner organizations, such as the L.A. LGBT Youth Advocates Coalition and the Los Angeles chapter of PFLAG, an all volunteer organization run by parents, family members, LGBTQ persons and their friends.
The map is available for all of the estimated 53,000 people in L.A. County experiencing homelessness, but is geared for LGBTQ homeless youth. While LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness have similar needs to their non-LGBTQ peers, they also have needs specific to their identities.
