Connect 4 Life – (Now PowerOn)

“With LGBT youth being disproportionately affected by homelessness, the effects of “Connect 4 Life” could be far-reaching.” ~Huffington Post Connect 4 Life is a first-of-it’s-kind program developed to put mobile technology into the hands of one of the LGBT communities most vulnerable populations. According to a landmark 2012 study and part of the LGBT Technology Institute’s Connect 4 Life research, nearly 40% of America’s homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. This equates to over 650,000 LGBT youth on America’s streets at any given moment.
