Your legal counsel was exactly what I needed to stop shaking in the middle of the storm. Your care and compassion is communicated to people immediately, and I’m so glad I waited the extra day in order to meet with a LGBT-friendly counselor. My sincerest thanks for everything you have done for me and continue to do for our community.




An amazing organization that does great work, and their staff is amazing and professional. Truly a safe space for all the community.
