At Trinity Place Shelter our mission is to help homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth and young adults safely transition out of the shelter system and grow into independent and productive adults.

Trinity Place Shelter is a non-sectarian, 10-bed transitional shelter that provides LGBTQ youth and young adults with a safe place to sleep, shower, eat and store belongings. We provide individual and group counseling, independent living supportive services, and access to transportation.

We provide case management, education, career counseling, access to comprehensive health services and mental health services utilizing community partnerships. All youth referred to Trinity Place are interested in and assisted with actively seeking employment or schooling.
