Family Dinner

Who’s hungry? Food is not only part of survival but part of a celebration. Each night we meet, the YEPP family first gathers around the table to eat and share  – and we want YOU there. If you’re able to bring the meal (for 10-15),
we’ll bring the gratitude... and a unique experience!

Our Mission

The mission of YEPP is to create a safe environment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer youth experiencing homelessness to explore their history, investigate new ways to address their struggles and to celebrate their strengths through personal and leadership development, as well as community development programming that incorporate different art-expression forms.
