The Safe Homes Gala & People of Courage Awards is an annual fundraising event to support the Safe Homes program. The People of Courage Awards are presented to leaders, changemakers, and supporters of the LGBTQIA+ community. The event will also include a virtual silent auction component. Last year, we had a big variety of items such as WooSox tickets, restaurant gift cards, pottery, themed baskets, and more!

We are excited to announce that the 2023 Gala will be back in-person! More details and registration link coming soon.


About Safe Homes:

We are Safe Homes, a program supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) young people, and their straight allies, between the ages of 14 and 23.

The group is led by youth peer leaders, professional staff, and volunteers who offer support, resources and opportunities for socialization in a safe and nurturing environment.

Safe Homes offers two locations, Safe Homes Worcester and Safe Homes North, located on the Fitchburg State University campus. During these uncertain times, we are hosting virtual Drop-ins to reach youth, no matter where they are located.
