On any given night, there are 4,700 homeless youth in the state of Minnesota, 40% identify as LGBTQ.
Arise Project with United Way works to provide LGBTQ-specific programming including outreach, counseling, case management, shelter and housing; and by raising awareness around issues faced by LGBTQ communities in the Twin Cities.
We are proud to be a part of it as a Givenator!
We talked to Arise Project Steering Committee member Jillian Hiscock this morning about the impact our donations will have to the organization and how Minnesota compares to other states when it comes to LGBTQ-specific giving.
We also talked to Arise Project Steering Committee member Joe Rayburn and Giving Community Manager at United Way Jeffrey Moores to talk about the need for awareness and funding.
