Homelessness - Los Angeles LGBT Center

No organization offers a wider range of services for LGBT and questioning youth than the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

Whether you’re one of the thousands of LGBT young people experiencing homelessness in L.A., you’re looking for an adult mentor, you’re not feeling safe at school, or you just want a fun and welcoming space to connect with others your age, we can help.

Be sure to check out our annual Models of Pride conference—it’s the world’s largest free conference for LGBTQ youth.
