Lambert House is a safe place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth ages 10-22. With a calendar packed with activities, support groups, meetings, and more, online opportunities for connection are made available for those who are searching for a sense of belonging. With over 50% of the folks visiting Lambert House being youth of color, the organization continues to serve Washington state as well as virtual events accessible worldwide.
Lambert House was founded and received 501(c)3 status from the IRS in 1981 as the Association of Gay and Lesbian Youth Advocates (AGLYA), a group of youth and youth supporters who came together in order to create ways for sexual minority youth to meet. AGLYA became the first social service organization 100% dedicated to LGBTQ youth to receive 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. Today, Lambert House is the only LGBTQ youth center in Seattle and King County, and one of only 24 independent LGBTQ youth centers in the world. It served 740 youth in 2017 through an estimated 20,000 service contacts in their 30+ programs.
