Lost-n-Found Youth is an Atlanta-based nonprofit corporation whose mission is to take homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youths to age 26 off the street and transition them into more permanent housing. The organization operates a 24/7 hotline (678-856-7825), a Youth Center, a 6-bed 90 day housing facility, and 3-6 month host home program.
Lost-n-Found is Atlanta’s only nonprofit agency actively working to take homeless LGBT youth off the street. Their Outreach Director, Art Izzard, will be our speaker. After our speaker’s comments, we will break for refreshments and then join an hour of small support circles, each led by a trained facilitator.
