Trinity Haven’s Transitional Living Program (TLP)

TLP will provide a safe, welcoming, and affirming home for LGBTQ youth and young adults ages 18-21 who do not have homes of their own. The goal of Trinity Haven’s TLP is to intervene before youth experience chronic homelessness, and to help them pursue their education and develop the skills to thrive in the world independently, so they can graduate from our program into safe and stable permanent housing, with the skills to successfully maintain that housing. Our TLP will provide long-term housing for up to 24 months. It is not a shelter or a drop-in center. The capacity of our home is limited to 8 youth in order to maintain a family-like environment.

The Episcopal Fund for Human Need (EFHN)

The Episcopal Fund for Human Need (EFHN) is a diocesan-wide ministry that provides an emergency safety net for those in central and southern Indiana who "fall through the cracks" of human needs agencies.  Gifts through EFHN provide a lifeline to those who are hungry, homeless, or poorly housed, without transportation, or ill and in need of assistance.  Recently-funded EFHN partners include:
