Courage MKE's 2017 Gala: Homecoming an event for homeless LGBTQ+ youth
Fri, Nov 3 from 6:30pm - 11pm (Central)
Courage MKE’s Annual Gala; Homecoming will be on the evening of Friday, November 3, 2017 at 1451 Renaissance Place in Milwaukee, WI.
On any given night here in Milwaukee, there may be as many as 500 homeless youth. Would you believe me if I told you that 40% of these children identify as LGBTQ+? What if we told you that 26% of those who identify as LGBTQ+ are homeless because their families refused to support them because of who they are? To make matters worse, there are less the 20 beds in our city reserved for children who identify as LGBTQ+ where can feel safe laying their heads on at night. The need for a shelter for these children is needed now more than ever. 100% of the procedes of this evening go directly to The Courage House Fund.
During the event you can expect:
