For more than four decades, Covenant House has helped transform and save the lives of more than a million homeless, runaway and trafficked young people—including young people who identify as LGBTQ+.

True Colors United designed the assessment to help agencies like Covenant House take stock of their policies, practices, physical spaces, and programs to ensure a welcoming, affirming, and safe environment for LGBTQ+ youth.
