Supporting LGBTQI Youth

Youth
Last year, the number of LGBTQI youth celebrating Thanksgiving at Sylvia's Place doubled to nearly 60. Youth who have stayed at Sylvia's Place in the past are welcomed back with open arms and current residents get to share in the love of a Sylvia's Place holiday celebration for the very first time. Our Thanksgiving probably sounds a lot like yours. The cooking starts on Monday and doesn't end until the last pie comes out of the oven on Thanksgiving afternoon. When youth arrive, they write down what they're thankful for and post it on our blessings board. Youth and staff eat, laugh, and catch up with one another.
