In Solidarity at Pride!
Thank you for cheering us on again this year at the Pride Parade and Festival through Burlington.
As Stephanie, who works in our JOBS program, put it, “It filled my heart to see our youth walking in the parade with us, knowing that we were there to celebrate and affirm their identities.”
“This city needs you.”
We were so honored that Champlain College named our ED, Mark Redmond, as 2016 Distinguished Citizen.
Mark told the Class of 2020, “You don’t need to make an impact on this world after you get a degree. You can do it now. This city needs you.”
“What’s one thing…
“…you wish people knew about you when they saw you walking down the street?”
“I wish people knew that all my past issues were mistakes, and I change through all my life experiences.”
— one young person who accesses services at our Drop-In Center

"I’ve witnessed the disproportionate numbers of LGBT*–identified youth who experience homelessness and struggle with thoughts and attempts of suicide. It filled my heart to see our clients walking in the parade with us and knowing that we were there to celebrate and affirm their identities."
