WELCOME TO THE PROJECT SAFE ZONE



Our Mission: Project Safe Zone is a Program for all LGBT persons, with an emphasis on those ages 15 and up with a focus on supporting and building community to help young adults who members of the LGBT community, or for those currently questioning their sexuality. Our purpose is to provide counseling, support and guidance in a young person’s journey during this critical time in their lives. As the Program name implies, this is an inclusive confidential safe space without prejudice, negativity or hate where each participant may be themselves, be open, freely question and hopefully receive the answers they are looking for within a community of like-minded individuals.

The goal is to help young LGBT people understand they are, a critical and loved person in society and to help them grow and develop into well-adjusted confident adults by dispelling the stereotypes that the ‘LGBT Lifestyle’ means no religious faith support, is loveless or that is filled with only repression and loneliness. These are myths and through community, outreach with a religious foundation the Program will help educate and council LGBT members, parents, guardians and allies as knowledge and religious faith are two of the critical elements in everyone’s life that can help drive good choices and decisions. And let’s not forget the power of community, social interaction and just having fun in a safe space provide. So let’s empathize that no young person is alone or abandoned in their own journey – although everyone’s journey is personal you are not alone but are supported, vital and loved.

You are welcome: If you are over 15 and identify as LGBT or are questioning your sexual identity, if you are the parent, guardian or an ally of LGBT youth or young adult, you are welcome at Project Safe Zone.

How we can assist you in your journey: Through counseling, access to adult role models and lessons learned with focus on developing Personal Dignity and the importance of self-acceptance, self-value and integrity; Project Safe Zone offers LGBT youth counseling and mentoring to help each individual grow within themselves and learn their own individual purpose and direction. Our approach is a focused one which is to help LGBT people navigate the complicated and at many times the difficult elements of acceptance, positive self-image, moral principles, safe healthy choices and ethos.

The LGBT Lifestyle” is an often misunderstood stereotype that is an easy trap for someone trying to understand both their sexual and personal identity to fall victim to. Through building an understanding that a LGBT life can be faith-based and one of great love and joy is the best defense to help a young person avoid these images and traps, as well as help parents and allies understand and reinforce these points as well. It is important that LGBT youth understand they DO NOT have to fit into these preconceived notions of what being LGBT means in today’s world.

Though activities, subject matter experts, sharing personal stories and counseling sessions and life strategies, carried throughout all sponsored and social events, we will explore what it means to be LGBT person living with self-respect, dignity and to plant the seed connection their spiritual self-awakening as well. To live a full, well-adjusted purpose-driven life without needing to compromise one’s own character and integrity. That although being part of the larger LGBT Community, that LGBT people each have their own path and self-identity like all other members in our society.

The Program and its services are FREE to all participants.

So if you are on your own journey or helping someone though theirs, then maybe Project Safe Zone is the right community resource for you. Providing direction, personal insight and introspection so LGBT youth’s life is not defined solely by one’s sexuality or defined in by their sexual identity. There is a place for each of us with purpose in our Blessed Lord’s world. It is with this philosophy guiding principle that we can realize our true purpose AND true potential. Those youth with HIV/AIDS are most encouraged to engage us to assist in their path while allowing us to be your advocate.

Our Long Term Goal:

HARBOR HOUSE: A completely non-profit temporary/transitional residential home for abused, run-a-way and disowned LGBT teens 15-17, where residents are taught life coping and beneficial life skills to mold effective foundational living strategies in an environment of compassion, mentoring and self-confidence building honing the individuals ability to discern healthy life choices.



What Project Safe Zone is not: 

At certain times in each our lives we may experience the need to seek professional and targeted medical or psychological counseling services. The Program does not completely fulfill the needs of these services in total and encourages that each participant to seek the appropriate assistance they need, referrals provided up request. We are happy to identify other services and programs that maybe available for the benefit of those we seek to help.
