LifeTies and Triad House’s
Capital Campaign

Our Challenge: Raise $500,000 by 2016

$250,000 from Foundations
$150,000 from Corporations
$100,000 from Individuals

Our Goals

  • Increase services for LGBT homeless youth and eligible clients
  • Improve efficiency of existing structures

First Goal: Increase capacity

Create housing for LGBTQ youth who are ineligible for Triad House

  • Currently no homeless beds specifically for LGBT youth in NJ
  • LGBT youth living on the street are ineligible
  • Increase permanent supportive housing for those who age out

Second Goal: Improve Existing Structures

Increase efficiency per square foot of administrative building. More offices in the same space means that we can provide more needed advocacy work and more resources for our kids.
