“Whatever you are, be a good one.” - Abraham Lincoln
The Forty to None Project develops and funds innovative programs that empower gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth who are at-risk of becoming homeless or are experiencing homelessness. In particular, we seek partnerships with other organizations and service providers with a successful history of working with these young people to find ways to inspire and aid them to reach for the futures that they deserve and want.
Our first effort on this front is Camp True Colors. This past summer, the Forty to None Project partnered with One Heartland and Green Chimneys to launch the inaugural year of the camp for a group of gay and transgender homeless or at-risk youth living in out-of-home care in New York City. For one week, these young people experienced an array of activities that not only empowered them to keep moving forward in life, but also allowed them to just have some fun.
Camp True Colors will take place once again this upcoming summer. Due to the great success this past summer, will be expanding the number of youth that can attend and adding an additional day for 2013!
