Drop-In Center

Conveniently located near public transportation in Harlem, the 24-hour Drop-In Center is where any lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning youth can access food, medical care, mental health services, and much more. In January of 2015, the Drop-In Center became the nation's first 24-hour drop-in program for homeless LGBTQ+ youth. Weekend and overnight hours are when LGBTQ+ homeless youths are most vulnerable and when services aren't available to them. 

With so few beds available for homeless young people, the Drop-In Center is a beacon for homeless LGBTQ+ youth — allowing them to escape the streets for a safe, warm, supportive environment. At the Drop-In Center, LGBTQ+ youths can create community and access life-saving services, as well as education, job training, and referrals.
