To our Trevor community:
After several years of fast growth and commensurate financial support, we are now facing a tenuous economic climate. In order for The Trevor Project to continue to operate sustainably, we will need to conduct a reduction in our workforce in the next month. This is a deeply difficult decision, which we have come to realize as a last resort after taking other actions and exploring several paths, including but not limited to budget cuts, hiring freezes, limiting non-urgent travel, and more.
The wellbeing of our community is of paramount importance to us, and we are doing what we can to show care and support for all our people through this difficult change. While this feels (and is) very personal for all of us, we know that unfortunately we are not alone. Many organizations are experiencing similar, painful impacts given the current economic environment.
To be clear: This will not impair the quality or delivery of our life-saving crisis services. In the face of this difficult moment, as always, we are unwavering in our commitment to Trevor’s mission to end suicide among LGBTQ young people. And to advance our mission, we must grow a sustainable future for our organization.
Thank you for all your help and support; it is more important than ever given the challenging economic and political landscape ahead of us.
The Trevor Project Leadership
