About

Rainbow Family (LGBTQ+ folks) and Allies,

We have a need in our community.
We have a dream for our community. 
A place where it is safe to be. 

When someone comes out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer not everyone is accepting - people can lose their jobs, their families, their housing situations, and/or their lives. Depending on the situation, everything can be at risk. And when those things are lost, we want to have a safe place for people to go to - to rest their head, to be themselves, and to figure out their next steps.

Safe To Be is a non-profit for LGBTQ+ folks who have lost their housing situation after coming out. It will be especially trans-inclusive because those are the folks most often left behind and forgotten about. The end goal is to provide shelter/housing for these folks in an area that is inclusive and welcoming of diversity. It's been difficult to find such a location in the South, but we believe we've found it in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. 

Essentially, Safe To Be will be creating a tiny-house community for LGBTQ+ folks in an town central to Dallas, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Memphis (we will, however, welcome folks from anywhere in the country). 

This is a community project. 
We all have to come together and make this happen. 
Safe To Be has a small board of directors to start - and in the future will have a diverse board in place to run the nonprofit and make decisions, but we - lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, pansexual, asexual, demisexual, 2 spirit, gender rebels, non-straight folks, families, friends, and allies - must come together and make this happen. Your resources, contacts, conversations, and time will help make this happen. 

We set up on Patreon because we want you to be up to date on what we're doing and let you have input into what we're creating long term! Plus, once we're up and running, we'll have a continuing cost to run and grow - and your membership will support that. And in terms of growth and the future, we'd like to have space for homeless LGBTQ+ youth, LGBTQ+ families, and LGBTQ+ seniors. We'd also like to have low-income housing for folks who come to us in need, prosper, and wish to stay long term. 

This is our project, together.

So let's do this - Become a Patron today. 

If you're looking to do a one-time contribution, you can do that at Charity.GoFundMe.com/Safe-To-Be

We are considering ways to raise larger sums of money so that we can start building sooner - and we are open to your thoughts and ideas. Feel free to message Safe To Be on here or at ethan @ safetobe . org (without spaces).
