During the summer, many of Trevor’s youth can find themselves stuck at home in unsupportive environments, away from friends, or without the mental health resources they may have access to at school or college.
When LGBT youth were asked, “What is the most difficult problem facing you in your life these days?” The top answer was: “My parents and family are not accepting.” When a young LGBT person is thrown out of their family home or otherwise rejected, they are more than 8 times likely to attempt suicide, compared to youth whose families accept them for who they are.
LGBTQ youth facing a complicated summer need our help. Please consider giving at trvr.org/summerdonate. Other ways you can give include seeing if your employer will match your donation. Also during the summer, we’ve been grateful to companies such as Viacom and Deloitte, which have connected with us in valuable ways, such as marching with us at Pride and beautifying our Los Angeles and New York offices.
To help support Trevor as a company or individual, you can consider taking action in these ways:
- Donate solar chargers or old personal and business electronics for homeless LGBTQ youth through our #PowerON tech initiative and join us to raise awareness at Lost-n-Found July 6 in Atlanta.
- Join our Thunderclap July 7 with Interlude Press to help bring 1000 Young Adult LGBTQ books to libraries across the United States with our #1000BookChallenge.
The impact you make as an individual or company can help save young lives. Thank you for your support!
