The Ali Forney Center, a nonprofit service that provides housing for LGBT minors living on the streets of New York, had been planning on moving its drop-in center. As the location where a triage of sorts was performed, matching new young people with beds across the Center’s ten service sites as well as providing food and medical care, the 22nd Street site was far too small; its lease required the center to shut down at six p.m. daily. Hardly useful for a center that needed to aid young people in danger through the night, and so plans were made to move in a few months to a Harlem location, that they’d need to renovate. It’d take a bit of money yet to be raised, but the plan was in place.
