The Ohio Theatre
winner: Harvey House of Northwest Ohio
Harvey House of Northwest Ohio, is an up-and-coming shelter and resource center for runaway and homeless LGBT youth and their allies.
Their goal is to purchase and renovate a building that will serve as a safe space for LGBT youth. They’ll also provide basic necessities, such as hygiene products, hot meals, and showers, as well as tutoring, job training and connections to services, such as housing and counseling.
SOUP Funding will help Harvey House apply for tax-exempt status, which will facilitate their grant applications. They will also set up a PO BOX for donations and mailings and possibly conduct fundraisers to make this center a reality.
