Outreach for May/June 2019 - The Ruth Ellis Center
The Ruth Ellis Center is a Detroit-area social services agency that serves the needs of runaway, homeless, and at-risk lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth. Founded in 1999, the center is named after LGBT-rights activist Ruth Ellis in honor of her allowing her home to serve as a refuge for African American gays and lesbians as early as the 1930s.
The Ruth Ellis Center operates three programs:
- ●Ruth’s House is a residential housing program for LGBT youth ages 12–17 who are in the foster care or juvenile justice system.
- ●Second Stories Drop-In Center provides basic services and safe space for youth and young adults ages 14 to 24, including full meals, support groups, laundry facility and clothing, and recreation.
- ●Second Stories Outpatient Mental Health Services provides mental health outpatient services to LGBT youth.
Please consider a contribution to this worthy organization and its many important services. Your donations may be placed in the blue or yellow outreach envelopes in May and June with the notation of “Ruth Ellis Center.”
Thank you for your consideration.
