Sunday’s Dedicated Plate to Lambert House
This Sunday, February 17, our plate collection will benefit Lambert House. This organization was selected by teens in UUC’s youth group to receive the dedicated plate collection for the month of February. We hope you will be generous in your giving.
Lambert House, located in Seattle, WA, is a safe place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth ages 11-22. Lambert house serves 20-40 youth each day, and provides activities, support groups, planning meetings, dances, and other events.
Lambert House is an international leader in LGBTQ youth community building–the primary prevention strategy for the constellation of risks that disproportionately affects all LGBTQ youth. The risks they address include: social isolation, depression, suicide, alcohol and other drug use, HIV & other STDs, family conflict that can lead to homelessness and survival sex, and school failure. Lambert House provides LGBTQ youth with daily opportunities to make friends with other youth like themselves and with supportive adults. It is this connection with peers and adults that immediately makes life better for LGBTQ youth. Lambert House is where life gets better.
