At HRC and LifeWorks, we believe that we have a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of our LGBT youth, who make up 40 percent of homeless and at-risk youth. In our first year participating in MLK Day of Service, we are pleased to announce a service project benefiting LGBT homeless youth in our Austin community. As an HRC supporter, you, have seen first-hand how we can make an impact when we join together and take action.
