Your LGBTQ Center’s Youth Programs NEED YOU!

2016-2017 “Fundraising for Registration” with the Montrose Center
The Montrose Center is the first ever LGBTQ organization to be chosen as an official charity, we look forward to recruiting passionate fundraisers and runners to support our cause.
Funds this year will be designated to Hatch Youth at the Montrose Center!
Formed in 1987, Hatch Youth Services is dedicated to empowering lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual and allied (LGBTQIA) youth. The youth programs impacted more than 600 LGBTQIA youth in 2015 through our drop in center, group meetings, Safe Zones High School program, and individual interventions with homeless and at risk youth. Help fund the expansion of Hatch Youth Services and be a part of the next chapter of this incredible program!

In the words of our youth participants:
“I wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that Hatch saved my life. I met friends and family and people that I never would have. Hatch helped me learn that there were people out there that love me.”
