Support TLC4

SAAF’s Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th is an incredible facility that offers programming and essential resources to youth who identify as part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community as well as their youth allies.

Youth hear you. Share your love and support with LGBTQ+ youth.

How to Support TLC4

There are many ways to support the youth at TLC4. The number one way to help is to give to support the programming that the youth receive. Monthly gifts help to maintain the high-quality programming that youth participate in and allow us to expand offerings. Gifts directly support the youth in a wide variety of ways. When you give at the link below, you can rest assured that your donation will be designated to TLC4 and LGBTQ+ and allied youth. Simply write in TLC4 in the “Comments & Other Instructions” box.

In addition, we always accept clothing, hygiene products, and other supplies that help youth living on their own to live more fulfilling lives as their genuine selves.

Take a Tour

Come tour the gorgeous space off 4th Avenue and get a feel for what it’s like to be a youth in the space. Schedule a time with the Director of Development to learn more about programs offered at TLC4 and to learn about further opportunities to get involved and support the youth.

How to Volunteer

Volunteers help out at TLC4 by providing reception services, data collection, registration, and programming support among other activities. In order to work with youth, you must be able to acquire a level one fingerprint clearance card and you must attend a volunteer orientation with SAAF.
