About US

Since 2014, our vision hopes to find the world an accepting place for all of our youth, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity. We see a future where no child or youth ever has to experience homelessness or feel alone and isolated. We want to create the social change necessary for this future through community, education, and continual support of LGBT+ youth in need.

 Through a massive network of community partnerships, the generosity of individuals, and support from industry and institutions we hope to reach as many youth suffering in silence across our nation. We seek to provide tangible and immediate assistance to the LGBT+ youth of our nation in the form of emergency and temporary shelter, transitional housing, crisis prevention and remediation, creation of safe environments for youth, and community education.

Our Mission

The National Center for Equality and Innovation (NCEI) is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization that offers crisis prevention and intervention to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and all sexual or gender marginalized (LGBT+) youth. We help those who may become or are currently homeless and youth who are experiencing life-threatening issues. We are committed to positive development through action, education, intervention, and creating safer and healthier living environments.
