Find Support

You’re so worth it, babe

“I don’t know where to turn for help. I’m having a hard time making ends meet. I’ve had trouble finding a job where they understand or respect my identity, and it’s been a challenge to find stable housing I can afford. I feel like things are stacked against me and my friends, and I want to be able to help them out too.”

You’re not alone. Reaching out for help is an act of bravery, and of self-compassion.

Your desire to help lift up your friends affirms your generosity and solidarity. There are resources to help us navigate these and other challenges, and get connected to the organizations and people in our communities who will work with us on solutions.
