Rashawn is a 28-year-old gay man, and like far too many of his peers, he is homeless. Today, Rashawn feels supported at our shelter for LGBTQI young adults, but he and his fellow residents need more job training opportunities to secure income and live independently. Join our campaign to bring our award-winning culinary training and job placement program to LGBTQI young adults! Link in bio for more details.
Did you know that graduates of our culinary training program earn an average wage that is 23% higher than minimum wage? Join our campaign to bring job training opportunities to residents of our shelter for LGBTQI young adults! Link in bio.
We are so grateful to everyone who has donated so far! There is still time to bring culinary job training to our shelter for LGBTQI young adults this #GivingTuesday. Our award-winning program has placed 85% of graduates in jobs since 2000, and will help homeless LGBTQI young people launch careers and support themselves.

Happy Thanksgiving from Project Renewal! We are so grateful to our staff, Board of Trustees, Junior Board, supporters, and volunteers for their dedication to ending the cycle of homelessness in New York City over the past 50 years.
Did you know that 40% of youth experiencing homelessness identify as LGBTQI? This is a disproportionate burden, considering only about 7% of youth identify as LGBTQI. This #GivingTuesday, consider contributing to launch culinary job training at our shelter for LGBTQI young adults so they can develop in-demand skills to support themselves and live independently. See the link in our bio for more information.
