  • About the Organization

    The Los Angeles LGBT Center provides a continuum of services to assist homeless and unstably housed LGBTQ youth in overcoming the challenges they face on the street and in achieving self-sufficiency. The LALGBT Center has been providing services to this population since 1996.

    The Youth Center on Highland (YCH), is a seven-day-a-week drop-in and resource center that is a welcoming and safe space for youth and provides linkages to a wide range of comprehensive services. In addition to daily services such as food, clothing and showers, youth can access case management, mental health counseling, substance-abuse counseling, an HIV-prevention program, GED preparation and education programming, employment assistance and career development, computer use and internet access, all in-house.

    They may also receive referrals to housing, primary medical care, substance-abuse programs, HIV testing, and counseling. The LALGBT Center also operates a 20-bed Emergency Overnight Bed (EOB) program, a 24-bed Transitional Living Program (TLP) and a 12-bed Independent Living Program (ILP) comprised of six apartments. All of our programs are designed to assist young people in getting off the streets and onto a path to permanent housing and self-sufficiency.
