Homelessness Resources

The Coalition for Homelessness Intervention & Prevention mobilizes, advocates, and empowers community collaboration towards ending homelessness and fosters an effective system of homelessness prevention and intervention in the greater Indianapolis area. 

The True Colors Fund works within communities across the country to develop solutions that prevent and end youth homelessness

Safe Harbors Task Force: True Colors collaborates with the State Department of Children and Families to identify and meet the needs of LGBTQ youth in out-of-home care through policy, programming and advocacy work. In addition, we recruit foster parents for adolescents of all genders and orientations.

Up to 40% of our homeless youth population identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). It's time we coordinate our ideas and actions. That's why we've created the 40 to None Network, a free online community connecting service providers, educators, researchers, government officials, funders, advocates, young people, and others around the issue.

The National Coalition for the Homeless is a national network of people who are currently experiencing or who have experienced homelessness, activists and advocates, community-based and faith-based service providers, and others committed to a single mission: To prevent and end homelessness while ensuring the immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness are met and their civil rights protected.

Our mission is to protect LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently.
