The Ali Forney Center was founded in 2002 in memory of Ali Forney, a homeless gender-nonconforming youth who was forced to live on the streets, where they were tragically murdered. Too many of these youth are rejected by their families and the broader community and are thus forced to survive on the streets, facing the dangers of violence, HIV infection, and homophobia. Committed to saving the lives of LGBTQ+ young people, the organization's mission is to protect them from the harms of homelessnessJuly-15- and empower them with the tools needed to live independently through services that can help them thrive.

Our mission is to ensure that every girl reaches her full potential by providing girls ages 9-13 an opportunity and in many cases, their only chance to participate in sport and physical activity.
