Resource Center received a $18,500 grant thanks to the generous donors of the Mama Bears in March 2023. This funding went toward supporting the Center as it provides 450 LGBTQIA+ youth with affirming and trauma-informed programming. Check out the message below from their team on how they were able to support these youth during the holiday season!

“The holidays can be tough for trans or gender-diverse teens, but thanks to a grant from Legacy Collective, we are able to provide our youth with safe, affirming spaces this season - like our annual holiday party filled with games, gift exchanges, and a festive meal. As we celebrate our LGBTQIA+ youth holiday season, we are so thankful for Legacy Collective!”
