The Atlanta chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence has set up a fund and help line to find emergency shelter for LGBT homeless youth in Atlanta who are not able to locate immediate housing through other resources, such as shelters and LGBT youth agencies.
The phone numbers, up and running now and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, are 678-8-LOST-25, or 678-856-7825. A Facebook page for the Saint Lost and Found fund has also been created and a website, www.saintlostandfound.org is expected to be live later this week.
At a packed town hall forum Wednesday night at the Phillip Rush Center, gay activist Rick Westbrook, also known as Sister Rapture Divine Cox, announced he and other Sisters were forming the Saint Lost and Found fund to accept private donations to help LGBT homeless youth find a place to sleep and eat when other local resources are not immediately available. Westbrook also does community outreach for Positive Impact.
