As much as 40% of the homeless youth population in Miami-Dade is LGBTQ. Help ensure that these youth continue to have access to the services they need by making a donation to the initiative today.
Aqua Foundation for Women started this initiative in 2013 and lead the community to raise $100,000 [thanks to the GLBTQ Projects Fund and Our Fund who agreed to partner with us] to fund a new program to support youth who find themselves homeless or at risk. Today that program is called Project Safe.
Funding has been used for a variety of wrap around services such as:
- A full time position to coordinate services such as finding shelter, medical/mental healthcare & more
- bus cards
- washer and dryer use
AQUA is still committed to this cause and is providing grant funding in 2018.
