There is no greater need today than for the evangelical church to stand up and be counted in the effort to eradicate anti-gay bullying, reduce LGBT+ teen suicide, and combat LGBT+ teen homelessness.
Lead Them Home offers the following ways to express justice in these critical areas.
Since Fall 2017, Lead Them Home has been building a database of shelters around the nation that serve LGBT+ homeless youth with excellence. Our aim is to mobilize the church to build “justice bridges” from local churches to local LGBT+ shelter and drop-in centers.
We will be offering multiple opportunities throughout the year to help churches connect with local shelters in tangible ways, including donating winter wear, sponsoring teens for holiday gifts, .and funding education and job skills training to help LGBT+ youth realize independent living.
