On behalf of the KYFS Board of Directors, Staff, and Volunteers, we want to thank everyone who attended our 5th Annual South King County Pride Bingo. Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $1,000.

We raised this money with the following in mind…

Being a teenager is hard enough. The pressures of parents, peers, school, sports, clubs, and more can be a lot to handle. Add the challenges of trying to come to terms with your sexual orientation or gender identity in a high school setting, then the task of being a teen becomes nearly impossible.

That’s why Kent Youth and Family Services offers group services and individual/family counseling for LGBT youth. Using interactive methods and 1:1 attention, we do our absolute best to lift the burden placed on our teenagers during the transitional time in their lives.

With this money, we will begin moving forward on a new project aimed at developing drop-in and group counseling sessions for South King County LGBTQ youth. As we do, be sure to check back here on our progress. As always, thanks for the support.
