Queer Youth Project
Nationwide, around 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning (LGBTQ) – compared to
7-10% of the general youth population.
The Queer Youth Project (QYP) is a Northwest Youth Services' program dedicated to supporting and advocating for at-risk and homeless LGBTQ youth.
This program offers:
Free queer-affirmative counseling for youth and families.
Positive and healthy pro-social activities for LGBTQ youth and allies, 3rd Friday of each month, 4-6 p.m. at Bellingham First Congregational Church.
The Trans Fashion Treasury provides make-up, accessories, binders, other important items for transgender and non-binary youth.
School based supports including trainings and consultations for adults, group and individual youth support.
Free Queer-Informed Care trainings for community members.
