Voices for Homeless LGBT Youth Hosted by Ken Greves - A Benefit for New Alternatives featuring special guests from Broadway, Jazz and Cabaret.
Created in 2008, the mission of New Alternatives is to increase the self-sufficiency of homeless LGBT youth and to enable them to transition out of the shelter system and into stable adult lives. We do this by providing case management, education services, life skills training, community-building recreational activities, opportunities for self-expression, and support services for HIV+ youth. Our guiding principles are those of harm reduction, youth development, and empowerment.
There will be raffle tickets for sale at door for various items to win. $5 for 1, $10 for 3, $100 for 40 tickets. We will accept cash or credit cards.
