Ending LGBTQ+ Homelessness
FOCUS Services aims to empower LGBTQ+ youth experiencing homeless to become self-sufficient and establish stability.
Who We Are
Our mission is to offer resourced opportunities and safer spaces to LGBTQ+ youth experiencing homelessness through housing, educational, and employment-readiness programs.
We envision a world in which communities are committed to uplifting and rebuilding the lives of LGBTQ+ youth to ensure they thrive professionally, personally, and within their families, born into or chosen.

Did You Know?
The 2018 Youth REACH Maryland count found that 20% of youth identified as LGBTQ, and 3% identified as transgender.
PG County has the 5th most unaccompanied homeless youth in the state.
LGBTQ+ youth experiencing homelessness are often marginalized and disempowered in the community.
FOCUS Services is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to housing homeless LGBTQ+ youth in Prince George’s County.
How We Help
Every youth deserves to have a safe and comfortable place to call home. If we do not have space to house youth, we help them locate a housing option that best fits their needs.
Youth never stop learning. Whether they want to graduate with a high school diploma or a GED, go to a trade school, or a college/university, we help youth reach their educational goals.
The best way to ensure housing stability is to secure regular income. We help youth learn the skills needed to obtain and maintain employment in their fields of interest.
