Collaboration Purpose

The mission of the collaboration is to train staff and encourage organizational policy changes to provide unbiased services for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) youth in in-home and out-of-home care settings. The collaboration has predominately focused its efforts on out-of-home care including juvenile justice detention, foster care placements, and homeless shelters. The primary goal is to support organizational policy changes and trainings so that organizations will be better able to meet the needs and improve the outcomes for LGBTQ youth as well as others that the organizations serve.
