MLK Day of Service in Los Angeles

Join Us to Help LGBTQ Homeless Youth in Los Angeles

Partners: Human Rights Campaign & Children's Hospital Los Angeles (Division of Adolescent & Young Adult Medicine)

Let's come together as a community to serve LGBT homeless youth on MLK Day of Service. Taking place in January, 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 percent of homeless and at-risk youth. HRC and Children's Hospital Los Angeles, whose Division of Adolescent & Young Adult Medicine provides crucial support to HIV-positive or homeless LGBTQ youth, invite you to partner with us on a service project and make a difference.

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