It’s the 10th anniversary of Q-BLOK! In 2009, Pathfinders partnered with youth and the Cream City Foundation to create Q-BLOK, a housing stabilization program that meets the unique needs of LGBTQ+ youth.

“In the ten years since we launched our Q-BLOK supported housing program for LGBTQ+ and allied youth, we have learned how effective and essential a Housing First approach is to helping our community's most vulnerable youth be safely and permanently housed.

As one of the first specialized programs of its kind across the country, we have been recognized by HUD as one of only four model rapid re-housing programs. The National Alliance to End Homelessness has also highlighted Q-BLOK for its best practice standards and effectiveness. Our innovative use of volunteer adult mentors/coaches, combined with our peer-based model of support and intensive case management resources, has become the standard of quality services nationwide.

We eagerly anticipate Q-BLOK's continued growth, recognition, and success as the program enters its second decade of service to our community's amazing LGBTQ+ young adults.” – Tim Baack, President & CEO

Mahogany's story is no different than many of the homeless LGBTQ youth sleeping on the streets each night in our community. There are only a handful of housing programs nationwide that specifically work to end LGBTQ youth homelessness, and Pathfinders Q-BLOK housing initiative is one of them.

Please take a moment to watch, like, and share this video, and don't forget to say "Plus One" when you visit PrideFest Milwaukee this weekend!

Why should you give "Plus One" at the PrideFest Milwaukee box office? Will your dollars really make a difference?

Hear it from the heart and soul of a homeless #LGBT youth -- whose life was changed forever by Pathfinders Q-BLOK.
