Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th

What is the Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th?

The Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th is a SAAF place for LGBTQ+ and allied youth ages 13-24 to visit in order to access a variety of services to support their health and well-being. According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), less than 50% of LGBTQ+ youth say they have an adult in their family they could turn to for help. The top three most important problems for LGBTQ+ youth in their lives right now include non-accepting families, bullying and problems at school, and fear of being out. Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th provides critical services and support for youth that need support.
