About The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender National Help Center:
The LGBT National Help Center, founded in 1996, is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides vital peer-support, community connections and resource information to people with questions regarding sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Utilizing a diverse group of LGBT volunteers, we operate three national hotlines, the LGBT National Hotline, the LGBT National Youth Talkline, and the LGBT National Senior Hotline as well as private, volunteer one-to-one online chat, that helps both youth and adults with coming-out issues, safer-sex information, school bullying, family concerns, relationship problems and a lot more.
Additionally, we run weekly moderated chat rooms for LGBT Youth and teens to find support, acceptance, and community.
We maintain the largest collection of resources for the LGBT community in the United States and beyond, with over 16,000 local resources for cities and towns across the country.
We are the oldest and most comprehensive national organization of its type and scope in the United States, providing this critically needed service regardless of age or geographic location. Those who turn to us for help often live in rural and conservative parts of the country and are frequently feeling severely isolated, closeted and despairing, with literally no one else safe to talk to.
We provide a safe environment on the phone or through the internet for people of all ages to discuss issues that they don’t feel comfortable or safe talking about anywhere else.
