Youth Pride, Inc. primarily serves as a drop-in space. This means our youth are encouraged to utilize our space in whatever comfortable and respectful way they see fit. Our space has several video game consoles and two laptops. We have a Netflix, Hulu, and Spotify account that can be accessed on our main TV or the laptops. The kitchen is always stocked with snacks and easy to prepare meals (youth are supervised while cooking!). In addition to the many board games donated to us by Hasbro, we have a library filled with hundreds of LGBTQ literature to be borrowed and tons of arts and crafts supplies. The furniture in our space was donated by Cardi’s Furniture, and a lot of our youth enjoy lounging around chatting with friends, and making new acquaintances!  

 

Due to COVID, we have moved many of our programs online and are not offering typical drop-in at this time. We are open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1-5pm for select in-person services by appointment only! You can make an appointment to go through our Basic Needs Pantry and/or use our computers, free wifi and chargers.

Drop-in for 13 years and older is currently from 2:30-8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday and from 2:30-5pm on Thursdays. Drop-in for youth ages nine to thirteen is 5-8pm on Thursday.
