Ruth Ellis Institute


CREATING A WORLD WHERE LGBTQ YOUTH CAN BE SAFE AND SUPPORTED IN ALL SYSTEMS OF CARE

The Ruth Ellis Institute centers the experiences of LGBTQ youth to inform and change nation-wide systems of care through education and evaluation. We do this by:
1. Focusing on restorative collaboration with systems of care.
2. Supporting Family Preservation
3. Prioritizing evidenced-based practices for safety, health, and residential permanency. 4. Believing LGBTQ youth are experts in their own lives.
