In November the True Colors Fund hired CreagerCole Communications to promote its groundbreaking partnership with Covenant House International to ensure safe, inclusive, and affirming beds and services for the disproportionate number of homeless LGBT youth in need of shelter and supportive services across the country.
Covenant House, which offers shelter to more than 1,900 homeless youth every night in 27 cities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua is expanding the overall number of beds dedicated to homeless youth, including LGBT youth. The True Colors Fund is partnering with Covenant House to support and strengthen programs and services available for LGBT homeless youth served by Covenant House.
The True Colors Fund was co-founded by Cyndi Lauper to raise awareness about and bring an end to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth homelessness through a broad continuum of public education and engagement, advocacy and public policy, youth collaboration, research, and community building programs. Covenant House, founded in 1972, reached more than 50,000 homeless kids last year in six countries, and since its founding has served more than 1 million homeless youth.
It was an honor to raise visibility for this important collaboration and we look forward to working with the True Colors Fund in the future.
