It’s our anniversary month! Join us as we celebrate eight wonderful years of working to end homelessness for Atlanta’s LGBTQ youth!
Just eight years ago this November, Lost-n-Found Youth was opening its doors for the first time. Now, less than a decade later, the once volunteer-run organization is one of the primary service providers for homeless youth in the city and the go-to organization for homeless LGBTQ youth, who, despite representing less than 5% of the overall population, account for 40% of youth experiencing homelessness.
Under the helm of newly-announced co-directors Nasheedah Bynes-Muhammad and Ernest Walker, LNFY is now moving into a new era and a new home, with the goal of expanding its reach and impact even further.
Over the last 12 months, the staff, with strong support from its board, has been working diligently to ensure the organization is efficiently and effectively meeting the needs of its clients and the community. This month the fruits of that labor will be revealed.
Not only will LNFY unveil a new logo and a refreshed mission and vision, but it will move into a new youth drop-in center and add additional beds and housing for its youth transitioning out of crisis. The changes are major for LNFY who will now be able to support more than triple the amount of youth it’s currently able to house.
