Homelessness is an issue that disproportionately impacts LGBT youth; in large cities like Los Angeles, a staggering 40% of youth experiencing homelessness are LGBT. LGBT seniors, who are more likely to live in poverty and to live alone, are also disproportionately impacted by homelessness.

A reduction in funding for programs like the Center’s that support affordable housing for seniors and temporary housing for youth could leave many living on the streets. Additionally, many are fearful that policies to protect LGBT people from housing discrimination could be repealed.
