ABOUT Ali Forney Center

Alexander Roque runs the Ali Forney Center, a space dedicated to empowering homeless LGBTQ youth to get on their feet and live independently. From humble beginnings as just six beds in a church basement in 2002, they’ve grown to be a lifeline for over 2,000 youths a year through their 18 24/7 drop-in centers.

Policy changes will take a long time. In the meantime, those trapped in our justice system will continue to suffer its inhumanity.
