SUPPORT

We know that being a young person means experiencing a lot of overwhelming circumstances and emotions. And let’s face it, the adults in your life don’t always get it right. If you’re facing issues surrounding coming out and discrimination, bullying, racism, violence, anxiety, depression, HIV, substance use, or other challenges, The Center is here to get you the support you need. 

You can meet with counselors who understand what you are experiencing, and find solidarity and support with other LGBTQ young people. We offer:

  • One-on-one counseling
  • Support and discussion groups, including groups based around specific experiences or identities 
  • Everyday items such as MetroCards, snacks, and toiletries
  • Family counseling
  • The Clubhouse, a drug- and alcohol-free social space
  • Crisis intervention (including creating safety plans, offering short-term counseling, and referrals to shelters or other partner organizations)
