HMI believes all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential. The Institute serves as an accessible and welcoming after-school community for LGBTQ youth ages 13 through 24, and their families, with counseling, case management, mental health assessment, academic enrichment, remedial tutoring, arts and culture, health and wellness training, job readiness skills and college application guidance and support.
"I send my children to school out here and my daughter Penny has two transgender kids in her ballet class. I think the conversation about LGBTQ youth is vital for their mental and physical health," said Tracy Anderson, American fitness entrepreneur. "Because of the kids who aren't able to find support, it's important for us to help organizations like Hetrick-Martin Institute who are parenting and being of service to these young kids who deserve to have epic lives. They deserve to express themselves outwardly as they do inwardly."
