Hrc Pdx Mlk Day Of Service says
Join us to help LGBTQ / homeless youth in the Portland Metro area.....

Taking place on January 16th, MLK Day of Service is a "day on, not a day off." It is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community action to help bring together people, strengthen communities, and meet national challenges. One such challenge is homelessness among LGBTQ youth, who make up to 40% of homeless and at-risk youth.

HRC, New Avenues for Youth/SMYRC, HomePlate Youth Services, First Christian Church, and Q Center invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting homeless and at-risk youth in your community, including LGBTQ youth.

How can YOU make a difference?
By donating items and volunteering your time.
