LGBT Homeless Youth and News About Shoshy Cadoodle

3 Comments

An alarming percentage of homeless youth are LGBT – a whopping quarter of them. They are much more likely to end up living on the streets than their hetero peers. Almost 70% of those LGBT homeless youth were forced out of home by their own families. Shocking, isn’t it?

Albert Kennedy Trust Statistics

The Albert Kennedy Trust provides much needed support and shelter to 16-25 year olds who are either homeless or living in a hostile environment where they are often physically and/or emotionally abused.

Since this charity is doing so many amazing things for homeless LGBT youth, I’d like to tell you about absolutely everything, but that would mean we’d be here until next year! So I will limit myself to listing just three fantastic things they do:

  • making sure the youth have food and clothes
  • helping with exam fees that couldn’t otherwise be afforded for a person suddenly in crisis
  • maintaining and improving mental health of those struggling by providing mentorships

After being so inspired by the Albert Kennedy Trust, I’ve decided to donate 10% of profits made on all Shoshy Cadoodle cards. You can buy them here.
