The Story

Every single day, in Little Rock and across the country, LGBT youth are kicked out of their homes simply because of who they are.

But YOU can change the lives of homeless LGBT youth in Arkansas.  Help Lucie's Place build a home, help us re-write their stories to include a happy ending!

Lucie's Place is in the final stretch of our campaign to open a home for homeless LGBT young adults in our community.

Tom's of Maine recently gave Lucie's Place a generous $20,000 grant and with your help, we will #TripleToms and secure the money needed to begin the next chapter for the homeless youth in our community.

Please watch the video above, about Quenisha a former homeless LGBT young adult.  The next step to a happy ending is making a donation to help people just like her.

What is Lucie's Place?

Lucie's Place works with and assists homeless LGBT young adults in the Central Arkansas area. In 2015, Lucie's Place assisted 70 homeless LGBT young adults in our community with a variety of services, such as bus passes, cell phones, toiletries, clothing, counseling and assistance finding other services in the community. Lucie's Place runs a drop-in center where homeless LGBT young adults can come during the day and receive services, work with their case manager, use the computer lab for job applications, or simply hang out. For many, this is the only place in town that is safe from anti-LGBT discrimination, harassment or violence. 

Since beginning in 2012, Lucie's Place has been working to raise the money needed to purchase a home for 8 homeless LGBT young adults. With your help, we will complete this crowd funding campaign and purchase a home in 2016!

Thank all of you for your continued support!

Because of you, we're moving closer towards opening our home for homeless LGBT young adults!

We've been keeping busy around here! The BBC was recently in Little Rock and visited Lucie's Place to speak to one of our friends!

We are constantly in awe of the strength and resilience of LGBT youth who have been through so much... but still move forward.

Please take a moment to hear Kaelon tell his story of growing up gay in Arkansas.
