When & Where
Trinity Place Shelter
Our mission is to help homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) youth and young adults in New York City to safely transition out of the shelter system and grow into independent, positive, and productive adults.
Trinity Place Shelter is a non-sectarian, 10-bed transitional shelter that is open all year to provide LGBTQ youth/young adults with a safe place to sleep, eat, store belongings, have access to transportation, individual/group counseling, and additional independent living supportive services.
Through strong local community partnerships, we are able to provide access to comprehensive health services, case management, education, career counseling, art classes and mental health services. All youth referred to Trinity Place have been identified as interested in, or are actively seeking, employment or schooling.
We provide a unique, home and family-like environment where the youth receive the respect, individualized care, and basic services so often denied them.
