Found: Haven for LGBTQ Youth

Print More

On a street called Juniper in Atlanta is a house growing more welcoming every day to LGBTQ teens looking for a safe and restful place.

This is a project of Lost-n-Found, a nonprofit with the aim of taking this vulnerable population off the streets and into housing, permanently. With a big boost from Atlanta’s Saint Mark United Methodist Church, the grand but decaying house at 768 will be ready… soon.

And what a house, it could be, will be, with some sweet rehabilitation compliments of a bunch of vulnerable LGBTQ teens.

For a bunch of pictures, and a few words, see our fine arts site, The Bokeh, for a photo essay by Patricia Chourio. It’s about a Minneapolis teen named Mick and his journey that has ended, at least for now, working on the house at 768 Juniper.
