This Christmas I choose to give to charities that will support those who have been marginalized, and who will likely be increasingly marginalized because of the incoming President. I am a senior minister in a congregation that supports the rights of people of all gender preferences and sexual orientations. Giving to The Trevor Project and working with lgbtqi youth in my own community are two ways I can maintain hope at this time in our society. This Christmas donation is also the honor the love shared between my niece and her partner.
The Trevor Help line along with their social web site Trevor Space is a great resource for not only me, but also many GLBTQ youth. The fist time i called the Help line i was 13 and extremely confused about my whole life. The lady on the line helped me to realize that things do have a bright side and very well may have saved my life in the long run if not just at that point in time. I then called it again about a year later, now being out to most family and friends, when me and my first girl friend broke up. Again the person on the line helped me to see the bright side of thing and that life is worth living. At the end of that call was when the person on the line told me about Trevor Space and as i said above it is truly a great resource. I am now doing much better in my life with the help of some medications and have improved so much over even the last few months. I thank the Trevor project for being then at a point in my life when it seemed like there was no one else! Brianna A.
I discovered The Trevor Project through the GLSEN. I think that it is an amazing orangization and I have been spreading it and TrevorSpace to all of my other LGBTQ friends, as well as some of my straight friends that are also stuggling with suicide. I believe that The Trevor Project deserves the Pride Choice Award for all of it's hard work and all of the lives that it has helped save the Trevor Hotline.
The Trevor Project is the best at providing an invaluable service to LGBT teens, letting them know that they are by no means alone. The volunteers are great, which makes the organization great. I hope that more teens will find the Trevor Project and the solace it had provided so many others.
Thank you Trevor Project for all the support you have provided to the community! You have an amazing hardworking staff and I hope you will continue to provide the well needed support you have.
Many LGBT children lead isolated lives because of their inability to find resources and others like them. The Trevor Project really serves this community by providing the support and networking that these children lack. By addressing a particularly vulnerable group - kids in their mid and late teens - they have undoubtably given a helping hand to those who would have otherwise turned to other outlets such as drugs or self abuse.
It's a great resource. I had the pleasure of meeting a few members and volunteers and they provide a great service.
I've never had the problem, but I could imagine how The Trevor Project can help the LGBT youth in need, and save lives! It's a much needed service to our community, and to help youth who lost their direction in life.
I love these guys. All the people are so attractive and hard. working! Hands down the best. The Trevor Project ftw!!!
I grew up not being able to identify with anyone. It wasn't until I got older that I experienced things that made me aware of who I truly was. To spend the better part of your youth in confusion is like being locked in the darkness. The Trevor Project reaches out to those like myself and it would've been helpful if i knew about non-profit organizations like this when I was younger. Keep up the good work and continue lending a kind ear to those who need it.
