Different Avenues


"We provide services to youth and young adults, ages 12 to 30 years, who are homeless or living in insecure housing. Many of our clients are transgendered, gay, lesbian or bisexual. We also help youth who themselves are parents, as well as parents of youth. We work with people who engage in street survival strategies, including sex for favors."
