For more than ten years the Frank Harr Foundation has been an LGBTQIA education and outreach organization. Our goal is to provide safe spaces and help others do the same within their own community and organizations while providing leadership opportunities for our youth and support for our elder population.
Our youth need resources when navigating what it means to be a part of the greater LGBTQIA community. We are committed to providing programs, events and support for all young people whether they have familial and peer support or not. Additionally, initiatives exist for individuals, families, education and health providers wishing to gain a better understanding of how best to serve our youth.
We are aligned with SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders) whose primary objective is to improve aging for LGBT people nationwide. LGBT older people are twice as likely to be single and live alone and four times less likely to have children. SAGE’s 40-year track record of outreach allows us to serve those in need of services and look out for each other while helping our seniors experiencing significant challenges with limited support systems.
The Frank Harr Foundation is committed to aligning with individuals, businesses (small and large), and organizations that help us fulfill our mission of addressing the needs of our LGBTQ community. Whether through engagement with Port City Pride, or joining forces and working with or promoting the efforts of PFLAG, SAGE, Queer Current, the LGBTQIA Resource Center at UNCW, Stonewall Sports and so many more, you can be confident that supporting us means you’re supporting efforts designed to improve the lives of those we serve.
