“SAGE House was born out of my love for my children who happen to be LGBTQ+ and complete disbelief that any parent could reject their child for being their true self. Our organization will provide a residence for potentially homeless youth, but also a safe place for individual, family, and group counseling. We plan to have events and community-wide education as well.”
