WE SEE LOVE
People My Age That Understand
My family and friends do not support my identity as a lesbian. My dad told me I did not know who I am yet, a teacher told me it was just a phase and to choose better friends, and my mom has not really talked to me for about 8 months. I am thankful my sister found LGBTQ SAVES for me. I get to visit and talk to people my age that understand what I am going through. I am just me. Wonderful, Silly, Loveable, Me! I wanted to end my life at one time and now I have other people to reach out to for support when I am feeling sad.
The Resources You Need
LGBTQ SAVES is wonderful agency who helped me understand and get the resources needed for my child. I have never met such honest loving people who truly care about the youth and parents they serve. This agency is going to save and provide help to so many. They have the resources you need and if they don't they can help you find what you need. Thank you for all your help!
FOR WHAT IT IS
A Part Of My Life Now
To the woman who saved my life! I'm so grateful for you being introduced to me. I have no idea where I'd be if I hadn't met you, so I'm so happy that you're a part of my life now. You're a true blessing and I love you like a mother (you're better than my own sometimes.) Thank you for the opportunity to be part of Write Out & LGBTQ SAVES"
Advocate For Fair And Equal Treatment
I have a good friend who identifies as a lesbian. She is bullied at school. It is extremely hard to get help at school and the people at LGBTQ SAVES helped. LGBTQ SAVES taught me how to have a voice and advocate for fair and equal treatment for not only me but all my friends.
NOT WHO IT IS
A Pivotal Point In My Life
Meeting you was a pivotal point in my life. I can't thank you enough for being there for me. For all of us. I can't imagine how hard life would be without having people like you to turn to. I hope to continue what you've started with LGBTQ SAVES for decades to come.
Love And Support
I would not be where I am today, if it wasn't for you and the other youth at LGBTQ SAVES. Thank you for the love and support, and for everything you do.
