According the U.S. Census, over 10% of our 2.6 million Miami-Dade County residents identify as LGB or T, with hundreds arriving each day via the Caribbean & Latin America – often undocumented – making this number much higher.

Family rejection, fear for their safety & lives because of their sexual orientation, abuse and lack of laws protecting equal rights for all – often leads to issues of depression, social anxiety & low self-esteem – directed at ourselves and those around us.

Our project provides much needed guidance, learning tools & services to assist this underserved and often overlooked segment of our community…Resulting in a better understanding of the LGBT community, better trained & prepared individuals, tools for a better quality of life & overall support.
