Our mission is to provide a safe shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth in Pittsburgh. We will also provide emotional support and resources to help LGBTQ youth develop the skills needed to live independently.
Proud Haven, Inc. in Pittsburgh will be a leading resource for shelter and support services that improve the quality of life for homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth as well as an advocate for the LGBTQ population as a whole.
Proud Haven Inc was first conceived in 2012. It was incorporated in Pennsylvania in April 2013 and received IRS approval as a 501(c)(3) in September 2014. We will be the first overnight shelter of its kind in Pittsburgh and the surrounding area.
We are in the process of finding a location in Pittsburgh for the Proud Haven shelter. We are raising funds to open and sustain the shelter. It is important that the LGBTQ youth that we will serve are assured a stable place to be home and we need funding to achieve this goal.
