SMYAL is Thrilled to Announce Our New Transitional Housing Program for LGBTQ Youth

A Place To Live, Learn, and Grow

For more than 30 years, SMYAL has served, supported, and enriched the lives of LGBTQ youth in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Despite our tireless efforts, a staggering 43% of homeless youth identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and queer. At SMYAL, we are committed to doing more.

This is why we are beyond thrilled to be launching a new transitional housing program for LGBTQ youth.

Designed to house, empower, and equip our homeless LGBTQ youth community, our housing program will include wrap around services to support the youth in residence. Some of these services include the list below.

The details are still being finalized but stay tuned for more information on how the program will operate and how you can help, including by donating to support this new program initiative.
