SAGE House will provide mental health and counseling support tailored to benefit LGBTQ+ young people, providing an open and supportive environment to explore and develop healthy relationships.

26%

of LGBTQ youth who come out to their parents are told to leave home.

40%

of Collier County’s unaccompanied homeless youth are LGBTQ

80%

of LGBTQ youth report cognitive, social, or emotional isolation.

50%

of all male youth suicides are from the LGBTQ community.

“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.”

Marianne Lambertson, Founder of SAGE House Naples
