The Peter Cicchino Youth Project works to interrupt the cycles of poverty and criminalization that prevent homeless and street-involved young people from living fulfilling lives free from discrimination, abuse, and oppression. Because up to 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning (LGBTQQ), PCYP specializes in working with these young people. Through a unique blend of legal services, advocacy, case management, and community education, we work to ensure that homeless and street-involved youth have access to food, shelter, income, health care, legal immigration status, and education.
