JANUARY PFLAG MEETING
January 19, 2020

Please join us for the PFLAG meeting on Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 2pm.

We are having Brendan Taliaferro from the Homeward Initiative as a speaker and will have support groups.


Brendan founded the Homeward Initiative with the grant he won from the University of Pennsylvania in April of 2019, shortly before he completed his undergraduate degree. He is from Stone Mountain, Georgia, and was inspired to get involved in the issue of LGBTQ youth homelessness by his own experiences growing

up in a conservative catholic family in a small, very religious town.

The Homeward Initiative is building
a community-based response to the
crisis of LBGTQ youth homelessness
here in Philadelphia. The issue is dire:
Approximately 40% of youth
experiencing homelessness in
Philadelphia County identify as LGBTQ.
Due to the lack of LGBTQ-inclusive housing
programs in Philadelphia, our youth are
often forced to decide between staying
on the streets or staying in the closet
so that they can access basic resources
to meet their needs.
                                                             

The Homeward Initiative is building a community-based response to the crisis of LBGTQ youth homelessness here in Philadelphia. The issue is dire: Approximately 40% of youth experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia County identify as LGBTQ. Due to the lack of LGBTQ-inclusive housing programs in Philadelphia, our youth are often forced to decide between staying on the streets or staying in the closet so that they can access basic resources to meet their needs. But our solution is simple: we recruit generous and affirming individuals with extra space in their home and match them with young people, who will live with them for 3-6 months while they stabilize and work toward independence.
