Preserving Their Dignity: Supporting LGBTQIA+ Students Experiencing Homelessness
A recent Chapin Hall University study found that LGBTQIA+ young people are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than non-LGBTQIA+ youth. Why is this happening? What resources are available? How do we support these students? Join us as we tackle these questions (and more). We will hear from impacted individuals and field experts regarding action steps for families, schools, and their communities.
In this webinar, participants will:
(1) Explore data on LGBTQIA+ students who experience homelessness
(2) Identify red flags and risk factors for LGBTQIA+ students who experience homelessness
(3) Hear testimonials from impacted individuals
(4) Gather resources to support the advocacy of LGBTQIA+ students who experience homelessness
