LeGaL's LGBT Youth Qlinic 

Location:

487 Hudson St., New York, NY 10014 at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields

 

Time:

Every Saturday from 7:00-8:00 p.m.

Who runs the legal clinic?

The LGBTQ Youth Qlinic (the “Qlinic”) is a project of The LeGaL Foundation in collaboration with Sanctuary for Families’ Pro Bono Council to provide free short-term limited scope legal services to LGBTQ youth.  The Qlinic takes place on Saturday evenings at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields in coordination with Art & Acceptance, a weekly program that provides a safe space and community for lesbian, gay, transgender, gender non-conforming, questioning, and allied youth ages 16-24, many of whom are homeless or struggling with unstable living situations.

What kind of help is offered?

It is the goal of the Qlinic to intervene in the cycle of alienation, discrimination, and exploitation that marginalizes LGBTQ homeless youth.  Through short-term legal consultations and referrals, the Qlinic connects youth participants of Art & Acceptance to legal resources to address critical needs.  In each consultation, Qlinic Volunteer Attorneys identify legal issues and remedies that may be available to youth participants, and, if appropriate, refer youth participants to legal services organizations that  can offer further guidance or representation.  In providing these services, the Qlinic aims to foster an atmosphere of acceptance and inclusiveness, and to communicate to youth participants that their needs are visible and important and that their voices are heard.
