Our community is participating in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (LGBTQ) Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative, led by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This initiative consists of developing and implementing a plan for LGBTQ youth homelessness prevention and intervention in two communities, including Hamilton County, Ohio, and Harris County, Texas. Montrose Center is Harris County’s local lead for this initiative. For questions or comments, please contact Deb Murphy, Youth Service Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 713.529.3590. The national initiative’s goals are to learn more about (1) preventing homelessness for LGBTQ youth and (2) intervening early to prevent chronic homelessness among LGBTQ youth
