Trinity Place Shelter (TPS) is a small, non-sectarian shelter for LGBTQ+ youth and young adults aged 18 to 24 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Our mission centers on an especially vulnerable population in our community and fills a critical niche by providing a safe, affirming and nurturing environment to young people, disproportionately black and brown youth, who have systemically been denied such.
Trinity Place Shelter residents can stay up to 18 months and receive the individualized care and support they need to begin to heal from trauma and gain a strong foothold out of homelessness. Food, supplies, transportation and laundry costs are provided, and through onsite social workers, volunteers and community partners, our residents access supports such as therapeutic counseling, resume building, interview coaching, medical services, legal counsel and money management.
Trinity Place Shelter relies on the generosity of our vibrant and growing community of supporters who demonstrate love through action. Help us sustain this crucial and transformative community resource and break the cycle of homelessness!!
