The first step to making it on your own.
We offer a one-of-a-kind transitional residence in the heart of Hollywood for LGBT youth who don’t have a home of their own and have been turned away from their families. While you’re living here, our staff will help you find and maintain a job, enroll in school, and manage your savings so you can succeed once you are living on your own.
Dorm-style rooms provide co-ed youth with a dresser, closet space, and freedom to decorate your space. Residents who do well in the program can move to a room with more space, a television, and a DVD player.
Personal Attention and Support
Our case-management staff will work with you to maintain your appointments, track your progress, and help you through challenges. Caring and helpful staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help you find the resources you need, listen to your concerns, and share in celebration of your accomplishments.
Each day, residents enjoy delicious meals prepared by the Residential Dietary Coordinator. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the community dining room. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about proper nutrition, food handling, and safety tips, and get a chance to prepare a meal for your housemates.
Based on your case plan or interest, we offer weekly support groups. Topics include financial planning, employment preparation, health education, and assistance in finding affordable housing.
Living Room with TV and DVDs
On your days off and in the evenings, you have free reign to relax in our living room, watch TV, and enjoy our DVD collection.
Computers and Internet Access
You can use our computer lab to look for a job, get your class schedule, or check your e-mail.
Excursions and day-trips planned by staff and residents include movies, hiking, art museums, and more.
