NAGLY Receives Grant from LGA CPAs and Business Advisors 

 

During his last week before retiring as NAGLY’s Executive Director, Stephen D. Harrington received a generous grant of unrestricted operating support from Sharon Masse, LGA Gives Back Champion at LGA CPAs and Business Advisors in Woburn. In presenting the check, Masse said, “Our team members have a passion for giving back to the communities where we work and live, and it was an honor for us to present this donation on behalf of the Cummings Foundation in recognition of LGA’s 40th Anniversary.  We look forward to being able to nurture our relationship with NAGLY through volunteer efforts in the near future!”


We are very happy to welcome LGA, LLC as one of our newest partners in our mission to
honor, respect, educate, and empower GLBTQ+ youth on the North Shore.

Please Take This Survey About Youth Homelessness 

 

Many of us don’t fit the stereotypes of people experiencing homelessness, but could use support with housing and resources.

Massachusetts is trying to better understand and meet the needs of youth and young adults who experience housing instability & homelessness.

 

If you are under 25, take the confidential 2021 Youth Count survey between April 12th- May 24th.

 

Data from this survey will impact funding & services for young adults experiencing housing instability.
