Center in a Box

Parity's Center-in-a-Box is a way for faith communities to make a very real, direct and important difference in the lives of LGBTQ youth.  In some areas, particularly rural areas, services and help for LGBTQ youth may be limited - if it exists at all. Churches can step into this area of need by helping to prevent LGBTQ youth suicide and homelessness and to promote health and wellness for these vulnerable individuals.

Parity staff have mentored volunteers from dozens of faith communities as they implemented our best practice based community programs, each one developed especially for a particular area, faith community and the needs of local LGBTQ youth.   There is a variety of options to suit every community,The only limit to what a community can do is its heart - we provide the rest!

Watch for our Center-in-a-Box handbook which will be released in early 2017.
