About

Did you know that 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ? Have you ever considered how you can help?

We are looking for community members (hosts) who are willing to open up their home and provide a room for a young person to live with them for a period of 6 months to a year. We work in partnership with hosts and youth to create a safe and supportive space, and develop the skills and resources for the youth to ultimately move into independence.

Open up your home and become a Host for a homeless young person through our Host Home Program. We need our community to help make this program a success. Together we can change the lives of LGBTQ homeless youth!

The Host Home Program, a program of Project SAFE, was established as a community response to the issue of youth homelessness and the lack of adequate housing in Miami-Dade County. This program specifically addresses the needs of homeless LGBTQ youth 18-24, and those most often underserved: youth of color, male-identified youth, and transgender youth.

Please contact Tracey at tracey@pridelines.org if you are interested in hosting or getting additional information.
