Sanctuary (Hospitality Program) Cross Street Community is preparing to operate a 19-bed facility for LGBTQIA+ houseless youth and young adults. This program is currently in the planning stage, however, we are seeking funds to secure a space (approximately 3,500 sq ft), architects and all the necessary legal junk that goes along with this program. Our current goal is to raise $100,000 prior to opening the facility. This will allow us to secure a space, make the necessary renovations, permits, and purchase furniture and supplies. This is not our operating budget, but seed funds to move the process along. Sanctuary will not be seeking federal, state, and/or city funding for this program, as we really do not want to be told who, and how long a person may stay with us.
