ABOUT PROJECT FIERCE CHICAGO
Project Fierce Chicago seeks to create affirming transitional housing for LGTBQIA+ youth in Chicago that is responsive to the needs of young people. By mobilizing our communities, we provide pathways to independence.
PFC launched publicly in April of 2013 and received an overwhelmingly supportive response from queer & allied communities. Since then, the organization has expanded exponentially, hosted myriad community events, collaborated with radical organizations, and raised thousands of dollars. Dozens of volunteers have dedicated time and energy to organizing events, house-hunting, promoting the project through tabling, social media, and our monthly newsletter, and collaborating on fundraising efforts.”
PFC has spent the last four years building a sustainable foundation, including cultivating community, small businesses, foundation and donor support. Through this work, we have also created a base of committed volunteers and board members and established the infrastructure to provide community-based, youth-centered, transitional housing. Due to your support and belief in our mission, in 2015 we were able to purchase a four flat apartment building in North Lawndale, on Chicago’s West Side.
