MLK Day of Service in Cincinnati

Join Us to Help LGBTQ Homeless Youth in Cincinnati

Partners: Human Rights Campaign & Lighthouse Youth Services

MLK Day of Service is on January 16, 2017. We hope you all will join us once again in transforming this national holiday into a "day on, not a day off" meant to turn Dr. King's teachings into a day of action across the country, and to deepen our commitment and connection to those in our community who are too often at its margins.

One such challenge is homelessness among LGBTQ youth as well as non-LGBTQ, at-risk youth. HRC and the Lighthouse Youth Services invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting homeless and at-risk youth in your community, including LGBTQ youth.

How can YOU make a difference?
By donating items and volunteering your time.
