Services:
The Sharing Community is a non-sectarian minority controlled community-based organization that seeks to inspire hope where often pain and depression are real - for people who are ill, who have no home, inadequate food, no job, or suffer the lack of effective job training. Believing in the dignity of every person, they accept the responsibility to nurture and care for those in need, by providing needed services or by linking those in need to services elsewhere, by seeking to give voice to the needs of the downtrodden, and by working to enable people to live independently and responsibly, with the ability to speak clearly their own concerns.

The Sharing Community operates 3 Emergency Shelters in Yonkers.  Every night, these locations provide 6- to 75 people with a safe place to sleep.  Without these shelters, these people would likey be exposed to the elements and/or sleep in public places.



Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Services:
The Mission of the Ali Forney Center is to help homeless Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Questioning youth be safe and become independent as they move from adolescence to adulthood. 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. The Ali Forney Center is committed to providing homeless LGBT&Q youth with the services they need to thrive, including shelter, HIV Prevention and life skills training.

The Ali Forney Center Services AFC is a comprehensive emergency housing program for LGBT youths aged 16 - 24. Their goal is to provide homeless LGBT youths with the support and services they need to escape the streets and begin to live healthy and independent lives. They offer an innovative continuum of services which include the following programs: Ali Forney Day Center The AFC Day Center in the Chelsea section of Manhattan is the entry point to their programs for homeless youths. There they offer street outreach, referral to their housing programs, case management, primary medical care, HIV testing, mental health assessment and treatment, food and showers. In the second half of 2005 they will also begin to offer an employment assistance program. AFC Emergency Housing AFC offers a scattered-site emergency housing program with sites in Manhattan and Brooklyn. They offer temporary housing in safe, staff-supervised homelike apartments. LGBT youths are able to reside in their emergency housing program for up to six months while they assist them in moving on to more permanent housing. In the second half of 2005, they are expanding their emergency housing program from 12 beds to 18 beds. AFC Transitional Housing AFC will begin to open a transitional housing program in the second half of 2005. When fully implemented, they will be offering scattered-site housing to 24 youths. The young people will be able to reside in their transitional housing program for up to two years, while they assist them in gaining employment and in continuing their educations. They will place a great deal of emphasis in helping their residents become prepared to live independently, and their goal is that their residents, upon graduation from this program, will move on to their own apartments.
