Finding a Safe Home With Pride

Youth experience homelessness for many reasons, one of the most common reasons is family violence and conflict, where youth flee their homes to protect themselves. The 2018 Point in Time Count found that conflict with a parent/guardian was the top reason for housing loss among youth. Through July 1st to September 30th, 2019, Threshold Housing is highlighting the detrimental impact violence and abuse in the home can have on youth, especially on their ability to build healthy habits, continue their education, and have a positive self-image. Studies show that there is an overrepresentation of LGBTQ2S+ youth in those fleeing from violence and abuse in the home and experiencing homelessness. At Threshold, this is the narrative we find to be true among youth we serve, which is why we are dedicating this campaign to celebrate the LGBTQ2S+ youth in our community. 💙💚💛🧡❤️🌈🏳️‍🌈 #FindingASafeHomeWithPride
