Programs & Services


We provide youth with quality services in an LGBTQ+ affirming environment. Given the discrimination and harassment that so many of these young adults face, they need comprehensive support to develop pride and security in their LGBTQ+ identities. At AFC, we approach each young person with respect and sensitivity— to develop trust first so we can help get their life back on track.
