Hear Their Voices
Four young people from Ruth Ellis Center will perform spoken word, telling stories from their hearts about their lives – past, present and future.

See Their Art
Three young people have been working with a resident artist to learn creative expression through a variety of media. The youths’ work will debut in a silent auction.

Support Their Safe Space
Homeless, at-risk and runaway LGBTQ youth come to the Ruth Ellis Center because it is a safe space where they are accepted and understood. The Center works to enrich and inspire youth as they move toward health and independence.
