Supportive Services for LGBTQ Youth
The Hunter Foundation has begun to establish relationships with several organizations including those that address biasness against LGBTQ Youth. Specifically, we would like to extend support to organizations that include services for LGBTQ at-risk youth.
Many at-risk LGBTQ youth are working hard to obtain a high school diploma or GED, are experiencing homelessness, are in need of counseling services, or are in need of receiving a number of support services to help them overcome hardships associated with being in foster care or biasness in their daily lives.
The Hunter Foundation is developing partnerships with organizations serving LGBT youth. In December 2014, the Hunter Foundation donated new clothing and shoes to the teens enrolled in a NJ based life skills program at Independence: A Family of Services.
In particular, the Hunter Foundation will fund supportive services for homeless or foster care LGBT youth that includes overcoming the challenges of bias at home and school, and providing educational opportunities.
