Youth First

The Holy Covenant Advocates for Justice and Peace provide a family-style meal once a quarter for the youth and families of Youth First at the Resource Center in Dallas. Youth First is one of the only LGBTQ-focused programs in North Texas that addresses the challenges LGBTQ teens face at home, school and in the community.

Serving middle and high school aged youth, 12-18 years old, Youth First equips them with the tools and resources they need to lead authentic lives. Family ties are strengthened, peer support networks are built and mental health is supported through activities that build confidence and address the specific issues that LGBTQ teens face during their critical and formative years. In addition, Youth First provides programming and resources for parents and families.

If you would like to provide food or join the Advocates, please contact Kathy Amos.
