Now's the perfect time to send the youth a housewarming gift!
Hair care, personal products, underwear, laundry supplies, art supplies, frozen dinners, backpacks, school supplies, socks, snacks, kitchen utensils….
Select an item(s) from our Amazon Forever Home Wish List and it will be shipped directly to the Center.
Bonus gift! Once you decide on a housewarming gift, purchase through smile.amazon.com and Amazon will donate an additional 0.5% to the Center!
The Center launched the five-year capital campaign of $3.4 million this past December. The campaign has funded the purchase and renovation of a permanent home at 3800 Monroe Road (pictured), and will provide for expanded programs and services (such as weekend hours), build a 10-bed LGBTQ Homeless Youth Transitional Living Shelter by 2020, add to operating reserves by establishing a quasi-endowment fund through the Foundation for the Carolinas, and allow the Center to remain debt-free.
Thanks to the early leadership gifts and pledges, and visionary gifts from the Gambrell Family Foundation, Myers Park Baptist Church, and the Howard R. Levine Foundation/Howard & Julie Levine, we have commitments for $2.25 million. Please help us reach the next milestone — $2.4 million or more — by the our granding opening on Sunday, August 20. Whether a one-time gift or a multi-year pledge, your contribution, of any amount, will help empower our LGBTQ youth to succeed.
