In early 1997, We Are Family started to offer direct services/ SafeSpace to LGBTQI youth in the Tri-County area through a weekly peer support group.

On the We Are Family website their mission says “We Are Family provides direct support, leadership development opportunities, and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex (LGBTQQI), and straight ally youth up to the age of 25”. The vision says “We Are Family’s vision is that LGBTQQI and straight ally youth feel empowered to find their places in the world, in their families, and in their communities”.

Senior At Ashley Ridge High School and a club member of ARHS Safe Space Kira Young says “There should be a great turn out”.
