The Gaston Lincoln Cleveland Continuum of Care (CoC) is a regional tri-county collaboration of local government, nonprofit and community organizations designed to promote community-wide commitment to identify and address issues related to homelessness. The fundamental mission is to aid homeless individuals and families by providing access to available services and resources that lead to long-term permanent housing and self-sufficiency.
Project FAM was born out of the desire to bring direct, basic services for LGBTQ+ folks in our community under one umbrella. Project FAM seeks to embody the notions that when basic needs are met; when folks are given an opportunity to have stability and independence; and when community is seen and valued, then we can begin to undo the harm of oppressive systems that have excluded us for far too long. Project FAM prioritizes the needs of Transgender Womxn and Femmes of Color and all Queer and Trans BIPOC folks. We know that if we can uplift TWOC, FOC, and QTBIPOC, then we can successfully uplift all in our community.
The Dignity for All: LGBTQI+ Assistance Program provides emergency assistance; security, opportunity, and advocacy rapid response grants (SOAR grants); and security assessment and training to human rights defenders and civil society organizations under threat or attack due to their work for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex human rights.
From affirming banks and family-building grants to free educational resources, these are some of the best financial resources to help LGBTQ+ people manage their money and achieve life goals.
