LGBTQ+ Drug and Alcohol Treatment Resources from Peter Langiewicz (September 2018)

I am a team member of the Recovery Village, an organization dedicated to helping individuals struggling with substance abuse into recovery. We feel that quality content is key to providing those struggling with addiction and their loved ones with educational information on how to get help. With your help, we can continue to lift up our LGBTQ+ friends and family through education and prevention that can save lives.

 

LGBTQ Youth: A Guide for Foster Parents, Counselors, and Social Workers from Alicia Sturtevant (July 2019)

Resources for LGBTQ Students from Emily Sorenson / Outreach Department / The Center for School, College, and Career Resources /https://www.csccr.org/ (January 2018)

My team and I at the Center for School, College, and Career Resources have just started a project to help LGBTQ students succeed in school. We compiled a series of resources to help these students succeed in school, and I wanted to highlight three guides…

 The first is a comprehensive guide created for LGBTQ students, allies, and other community members. It offers tips for knowing if a college is LGBTQ friendly and highlights the schools going above and beyond to welcome these students. It also explains the Campus Pride Index and includes an interview with Gary Howell, a staff member at Argosy University who works with AU Tampa’s Campus Pride group.

 The second guide focuses on transgender students. It includes scholarships specific to the trans community, describes how to find a transgender-friendly college and provides a directory for additional resources to help with academic and extracurricular success. You can check out the entire guide here:

The last guide in the series focuses on scholarships and financial aid available to LGBTQ college students. It's not only a list of funding opportunities -- there are tips on, for example, how to navigate applying to financial aid before coming out to family or if family is not supportive.
