This year for our “YEAR IN PRIDE” initiative we have chosen to raise money for The Ali Forney Center.
The largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youths in the country—assisting nearly 1,400 youths per year through a 24-hour Drop-In Center which provides over 70,000 meals annually, medical and mental health services through an on-site clinic, and a scattered site housing program. Their mission is to protect LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently; a continuum of supportive services to help them thrive and prepare them for independent living. Founded in 2002 by Carl Siciliano in memory of Ali Forney a gender-nonconforming teen who fled his home at 13 and entered the foster care system where he was bounced around to several homes, and was beaten and abused. Ali ended up living on the streets at the age of 15. Ali was dedicated to helping other young people and publicly advocated for the safety of homeless LGBT youth. Tragically, in December of 1997, Ali was murdered in Harlem—shot in the head and left for dead.
10% of every purchase will be donated to The Ali Forney Center.
