Our Mission

Building a movement to end LGBTQ youth homelessness in Kalamazoo County

As many as 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ. This vulnerable population is at high risk of drug use, depression, HIV/AIDS, and human trafficking. Collaborating with youth serving organizations to provide a broad continuum of services, OPS provides case management care for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ), as well as, questioning and non-conforming identified youth age 13-24.
