I made the decision green light the startup process of Safe Space by starting a booster campaign to help raise the startup funds I will need to help with getting it started. Safe Space will be a community center for LGBTQ+ youth and be a place where they can express themselves without fear of judgement from their peers in school and the center will be working with medical professionals who are experts in LGBTQ+ healthcare this will be done so LGBTQ+ youth have all the resources they need in one place so they don’t have to go all over just to find help. The center will not just be for LGBTQ+ youth, but for all youth from the city of Brockton, Massachusetts. The center will mainly be for LGBTQ+ youth, but we will not turn away someone who isn’t LGBTQ+ the center itself will be a place of acceptance for all youth around and from Brockton. The center will be also have group meeting so youth can talk about their problems in a group setting. Safe Space will work with the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services as well as a way for youth to request help from a bad situation that may be going on in their home and DYS and DCF will investigate to see if the situation requires them to be removed for their safety.
