Chris Kids

When I hear of a group or an organization helping gay youths I like to do what I can do to help them. I heard of the this place called Chris Kids in my home state of Georgia I've check them out and they have been around since 1981 and in 1986 they created Georgia’s first independent living program to address the needs of youth aging out of foster care and homeless Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth.

So I want to give a shout out to Chris Kids and ask any of you that have a little extra to give think about giving to Chris Kids. Every little bit will help there doing a good thing to help gay youths we need more places like this. Check out there website for ways to help also check out there facebook page and click the like button! Click on the pics and they will take you to the website and there facebook page. Thanks for any help you can do!

  2. Ryan, my parther and I have personally volunteered with Chris Kids since the mid 90s when Chris' got the first transitional home for GLBTQ youth - we've done painting, yardwork, cleaning, hauled trash, collected food drives, etc for the home. While I was working with American Express, I was responsible for helping this wonderful orgization received $25K over five years to fund their educational and independant living programs....WE LOVE CHRIS KIDS PROGRAM!! Chris Kids' is a super organzation that fostered only the second of it's kid at the time program to get young teens/young adults off the streets and into shelter - before finally transitioning....Awesome group!!!
