National Recommended Best Practices for Serving LGBT Homeless Youth

LGBT youth are overrepresented in the homeless population and all too often experience discrimination and abuse when accessing homeless youth services. This publication, developed by the National Center for Lesbian Rights in collaboration with the National Alliance to End Homelessness, the National Network for Youth, and Lambda Legal, contains the first set of guidelines dedicated to increasing the ability of agencies to competently work with homeless LGBT youth. The recommendations include specific guidance on how to improve daily practice, create a supportive organizational culture, and make residential services more accessible to LGBT youth.
