We hope the new year finds you well! 2017 has gotten off to a great start for Point Source Youth, and we have a lot of exciting news to share.
We are thrilled to announce our expansion with additional funding from the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation, the Henry van Ameringen Foundation, Gilead, and expanded funding from our inaugural funder, the Palette Fund, who have provided a new four-year grant for Point Source Youth's work. This new expanded funding will support our expansion to three to four additional cities this year and totals $335,000.
We are Hiring!

Funding for New Housing
In each city where we work, we collaborate with outstanding local service providers. We are happy to report that in New York City, our Rapid Rehousing partner, Bailey House, was awarded a HUD grant through the New York City Continuum of Care to support 30 rapid rehousing units for LGBTQ youth. In addition, our Baltimore partner, Youth Empowered Society - YES, was awarded funding to support 15 units by the Baltimore CoC. The awards total over $1.4 million.
We look forward to successful launches in 2017 and to reporting back on their progress!
