Mission:
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.

The Trevor Helpline, 866.4.U.TREVOR (866.488.7386), is a free and confidential Helpline open 24/7 that offers hope through its trained counselors. The Trevor Helpline receives tens of thousands of calls each year. In addition to the helpline, the organization's website provides information on identifying and assisting potentially suicidal youth and Ask Trevor, a confidential resource where youth can ask questions about sexual orientation and identity issues. The Trevor Project also provides lifesaving guidance and vital resources to educators and parents.

The organization was founded by three filmmakers whose film, Trevor, about a teenager who attempts suicide after realizing that he might be gay, received the 1994 Academy Award for Best Short Film (Live Action).

Governed by a 30-person Board of Directors, The Trevor Project has an operating budget of $6 million, a full time staff of 30+ and more than 500 dedicated volunteers.
Results:
The Trevor Helpline fielded over 30,000 calls in 2012 and has answered over 300,000 calls since inception.

In 2011, the White House honored The Trevor Project as a leading innovator in the realm of suicide prevention as part of the “Champions of Change” initiative. The White House initiative, “Champions of Change, Winning the Future across America” profiles individuals and organizations that are helping the country rise to the challenges of the 21st century.

Recognized as a national leader, Trevor has played a key role as an appointee of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, and has been a leading crisis resource for anti-bullying initiatives, including StopBullying.gov.

This is a terrific organization helping meet a critical need in our community. With the spotlight on youth bullying and suicides, I know they have been busier than ever with the surge of media coverage.
