The Trevor Project, founded in 1998, is the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) people under 25. The Trevor Project offers accredited, life-saving, life-affirming, 24/7 programs and services that create safe, accepting, and inclusive environments over the phone, online and through text, including:
Trevor Lifeline—The only national 24/7 crisis intervention and suicide prevention lifeline for LGBTQ young people under 25, available at 1-866-488-7386
TrevorChat—A free, confidential, secure instant messaging service for LGBTQ youth that provides live help from trained volunteer counselors, open daily
TrevorText—A free, confidential, secure service in which LGBTQ young people can text a trained Trevor counselor for support and crisis intervention, available daily by texting START to 678-678
TrevorSpace—The largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth
Trevor also operates an education program with resources for youth-serving adults and organizations, an advocacy department fighting for pro-LGBTQ legislation and against anti-LGBTQ rhetoric/policy positions, and a research team to discover the most effective means to help young LGBTQ people in crisis and end suicide.
In September and October, please consider making a donation to the Trevor Project and its mission to affirm, empower, and protect LGBTQ persons under 25. The church is collecting donations in two ways: (1) by mailing a donation to the church office and marking your check or envelope with “Trevor Project” (also in person at drive-in worship on Sundays at 10 am), or (2) by making an online donation at gpcong.org (select “Make a Gift” from the home page, then select “Monthly Outreach” on the online donation page).
