one-n-ten provides suicide prevention, workforce, housing, self-esteem and community services to LGBTQ youth ages 11 through 24. This community is at a higher rate for suicide, self-harm, unemployment and homelessness. Together, we are creating a safe space where they can learn from each other and become resilient and successful adults.
Currently, we are relaunching our efforts around homelessness, bringing together subject matter experts and community leaders to create a better solution and housing more LGBTQ youth, who make up nearly 40 percent of the homeless youth population.
Through helping our youth to become strong, resilient community members, we are making Arizona’s business community that much stronger, inclusive and healthy. Together, we can make Arizona not only the best place for business, but for everyone.
