Housing Justice

In Seattle and King County we are experiencing a housing crisis and LGBTQ low-income, people of color, immigrant, women, people living with disabilities, transgender and gender non-conforming communities are uniquely impacted. Our culture, history, safety and access to affordable housing is all being impacted and LGBTQ marginalized communities are the most vulnerable.

LGBTQ Allyship’s approach is not to silo out the issues of homelessness, access to affordable housing and economic injustice, but rather to make the connections in our community and in broader movements to address the root causes of homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism and homelessness.

 

In all of our housing justice work we lead with an intergenerational lens prioritizing our work to serve LGBTQ elders, youth and families with children.

Is there a homeless youth center/Shelter for LGBTQ kids to go to here in Seattle? I would like to raise money for that shelter if there is one that you recommend. Please let me know of all the ones that allow LGBTQ youth.

    Shana,

    We apologize for the delay in response, we’ve just hired an Admin to manage our website comments. Can you please send us an email to info@allyship.org? We can suggest PSKS or New Horizons.
