The Children’s Attention Home prides itself on creating a welcoming, nurturing, safe space for all children and youth.
LGBTQ+ youth experience much higher rates of homelessness, bullying, assault, and harassment than their peers. They also experience much higher rates of depression and suicide, often due to the stigma and discrimination they have faced. The Children’s Attention Home provides comprehensive, trauma-informed services to all youth in need, including those often marginalized in our community. The Home prioritizes training and coaching for our team, as well as inclusive activities and safe, personalized spaces to ensure we are creating an accepting and affirming place for youth to heal, grow, and thrive.
The Home continues to adjust and adapt to the dynamics of our population. We allow residents the right to self-expression whether it is preferred clothing, names, or pronouns. We continue to serve transgender youth by giving them a space to be comfortable in all while navigating their path of self-identity. The youth embrace each other with compassion and acceptance. We connect the youth with groups that focus on LGBTQ+, so they can gain a sense of belonging. The Home creates an environment for acceptance and understanding.
