End ‘Conversion’ Therapies for Gay and Transgender Youth

It is difficult, in fact impossible, to draw any definitive conclusions about what is involved in dealing with transgender teens and associate issues from any one situation.  These are complex situations and no two people's situations are exactly the same.  Some families have dealt with transgender family members very successfully, and both the families and the individuals are doing well.  In other situations -- when people are not well informed, or when some…

Latin American Youth Center: A Safe Path to Success

September 15 marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. To celebrate, we’re spotlighting the extraordinary staff and clients of the Latin American Youth Center, a longtime LISC partner in Washington, D.C. In its 50 years, LAYC has welcomed and served 27,000 youth, many of them recent immigrants, helping connect them to education, mentors, housing, work, mental health services and each other. This kind of work makes an enormous difference in young lives and in our communities, and we’re honored to be part of it: we’ve invested nearly $2 million in LAYC’s people and programs, including financing the purchase of the group’s home base in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.
