The amount of homeless LGBT youth I've known over the years is heartbreaking. So many wonderful young men and women who found the courage to come out to their parents, simply wanting, needing and expecting unconditional love and support, but were disowned, kick out of the house and thrown onto the streets.
When parents bring their kids to me and say that their son/daughter is having identity issues because their son/daughter came out to them and now identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, I ask the parent, "Is your child having identity issues, or are you having issues with your child's identity?" #God#love#peace#freedom#safety#homelessyouth#endstigma#loveislove#inspiration#motivation#healing#relationships#LivingWater#JesusChrist

The final project our older girls at Barber did with Zariah before her summer internship ends was SO inspiring! They created identity boards to help them reflect on all their amazing traits. Here's a few examples of their creativity and the words they chose to describe themselves When a family is dealing with instability of housing, staying in a shelter program can be a difficult transition. Thankfully this summer, Zariah's crafts and activities have really provided a fun and light atmosphere for the kids here at AAHS and we hope their words encourage you! #meanttoshine#stronggirls#brave
