The NYC Division of Green Chimneys (GCNYC) is dedicated to "creating safe space for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth who are in foster care or homeless. We seek to empower youth and equip them with vital skills and resources to help them enter adulthood as healthy, responsible members of their communities who feel supported and celebrated rather than disenfranchised and marginalized. By not problematizing their identities, we provide youth with the skills to focus on all of the milestones of adolescence -- free of the stigmatization they so often experience in other parts of their lives."
