We work 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.
If you are person experiencing homelessness who is under 25 years old, the Peter Cicchino Youth Project can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also continue monitoring voicemails on 877-LGBT-LAW. If you need services other than legal help, please contact our partners to see if they are still open and providing services. The Ali Forney Center for LGBTQQ youth can be reached at 212-206-0574. Streetwork’s Harlem Drop In Center can be reached at 212-695-2220. Streetwork’s Lower East Side Drop In Center can be reached at 646-602-6404.
PCYP HELPS YOUTH EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS, AND LGBTQQ YOUTH IN PARTICULAR, OVERCOME LEGAL BARRIERS SO THEY CAN THRIVE.
“You couldn’t be queer or trans in juvenile detention. It was all about what fit into the box, and if you didn’t fit into the box either they beat you down for it or they completely ignored it”
