ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND AND PROGRAMS Based in Huntsville, Alabama, GLBT Advocacy & Youth Services, Inc. is a unique organization with a dual, integrated mission: • To ensure the spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being of youth and young adults who are struggling due to issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity. • To advocate publicly for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community in rural and conservative communities and send a message to youth that someone cares and that they are not alone. • The Huntsville Host Home Program to prevent homelessness among youth & young adults. (The National Center on Family Homelessness in its report, America’s Youngest Outcasts 2010, ranked Alabama as the worst state in the nation for homeless youth to live due to the lack of services and support. We know that 20 to 40% of homeless youth identity as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.)
