Our coalition is comprised of a diverse group of individuals with a passion for helping youth and eradicating youth homelessness.

Currently, Outlast Youth is spearheading a campaign in Dallas to raise awareness about LGBTQ youth homelessness. Within the next year, Outlast Youth hopes to open a permanent drop-in center, be able to educate people on LGBTQ youth homelessness and train them on ways to educate others, and begin designing a mobile application service for LGBTQ homeless youth. By 2020, Outlast Youth hopes to have established a LGBTQ youth shelter and a shared database of resources.
