MLK Day of Service in Cincinnati

Join Us to Serve LGBT Homeless Youth in Cincinnati

Partners: Human Rights Campaign & Lighthouse Youth Services

Let’s come together as a community to serve LGBT homeless youth on MLK Day of Service. Taking place on January 20, MLK Day of Service is a "day on, not a day off." It is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community action to help bring together people, strengthen communities, and meet national challenges.

One such challenge is homelessness among LGBT youth, who make up to 40% of homeless and at-risk youth. HRC and Lighthouse Youth Services invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting LGBT homeless youth in our Cincinnati community. As an HRC supporter, you have seen first-hand how we can make an impact when we join together and take action. We thank Coldwell Banker West Shell, the Cincinnati Police Department, and the Hamilton County Sheriff Department for setting an example and donating items that can benefit LGBT homeless youth. Together, we can make a difference.

How can YOU make a difference?
