      Act Together Services to LGBTQ Youth


    Act Together has a long history of serving young people from the LGBTQ community. We have been the recipient of grants the past two years from the Guilford Green Foundation whose mission is to promote diversity and inclusiveness throughout the gay and lesbian community and the greater Guilford County community by raising and distributing funds for (qualified) gay and lesbian organizations and programs and growing an endowment to sustain funding for these purposes.  Grants from Guilford Green helped Act Together to accomplish two goals:


    1)            To provide LGBTQ training and education to direct care shelter staff.

    2)            To provide specialized LGBTQ training for shelter therapist.



    Outreach efforts for Act Together are conducted, at least partially, through the Safe Place Program.
