About the Campaign
Current estimates are that, on any given night, there are approximately 1.3 million homeless youth living unsupervised on the streets, in abandoned buildings, with friends or with strangers. Homeless youth are at a higher risk for physical abuse, sexual exploitation, mental health disabilities, substance abuse, and death. It is estimated that 5,000 unaccompanied youth die each year as a result of assault, illness, or suicide. Additionally, estimates are that 40% of these youth are LGBTQIA+.
Just One Night is a fundraiser that seeks to raise funds for organizations doing critical work with our homeless youth in the San Antonio area: Thrive Youth Center, that seeks to provide a much needed safe space for LGBTQIA+ youth to find their footing and get off the streets and Stand Up For Kids who do critical work in street outreach, apartment support, and mentoring of these kids. Join me and the San Antonio Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for Just One Night!
