EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2017

THE STORY:

We're very lucky to have what we need in life and each other. Please consider donating to the Ali Forney Center in lieu of any gifts. 

----

The Ali Forney Center's mission is to protect LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently. 

In 2002 Carl Siciliano founded the organization in memory of Ali Forney, a gender nonconforming teen who fled his home at 13. Ali was dedicated to helping other young people and publicly advocated for the safety of homeless LGBT youth. Tragically, in December of 1997, Ali was murdered in Harlem -- shot in the head and left for dead.

Since AFC's launch with just 6 beds in a church basement, the organization has grown to become the largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youth in the country -- assisting nearly 1,400 youth per year through 10 housing sites and a multi-purpose Drop-In Center.

According to the Williams Institute at UCLA, 40% of the homeless youth served by agencies identify as LGBT. The Ali Forney Center provides critical support for an underserved and underrepresented community.
