THE NEED

Years of research and countless studies have repeatedly shown that discrimination threatens not only access to housing but the stability of communities. Members of the LGBTQ community are more likely to become homeless, and once homeless, more likely to endure discrimination and harassment that extends their homelessness. LGBTQ individuals experiencing homelessness are at particular risk. Between 20 and 40 percent of all homeless identify as members of the LGBTQ community, and for them, homelessness or the threat of homelessness frequently forces individuals into survival behaviors that jeopardize their wellbeing and safety. (Hud Exchange)
