Project Description

Many youth end up at the JASMYN House homeless with no one to turn to and no place to go. They have been Kicked-Out of their home and rejected by their families, ONLY because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Who do I help?

JASMYN's Kicked-Out Fund helps Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth who are in crisis because of family rejection with specific needs that can not be met by any other community program, but are necessary to their survival, health, and well-being.

Every amount makes a difference. Contributions anywhere from $10 to $100 can make a life-saving difference for a young person
by giving them:

* Temporary Shelter
* Food
* Emergency Needs
* Help getting into school
* Job support
* Case Management Support

Every dollar of JASMYN's Kicked-Out Fund goes directly to client needs, supporting the most serious crisis of LGBT youth in Jacksonville. Your contributions are tax-deductible and all dollars given to the Kicked-Out
Fund will be used to meet the basic needs of an LGBT youth in crisis.

The Mission of the Jacksonville Area Sexual Minority Youth Network (JASMYN) is to support and empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth by creating safe space, providing youth development services and bringing people and resources together to promote diversity and human rights.
