YFT-Collin County still looking for a home

Posted on 08 Sep 2010 at 11:23am

Back in July we reported that Collin County’s organization for LGBT youth was looking for a new home, after being forced to move from its meeting space of 18 months in Plano.

Two months later, the organization still hasn’t found anything permanent or even semi-permanent, according to volunteer Jeanne Rubin.

Rubin tells Instant Tea the the group is still meeting on a temporary basis in the offices of Big Brothers Big Sisters in Frisco, where one of its board members works.

“Attendance has been sparse which is probably due to vacations, etc., but also because it isn’t our space,” Rubin says. “This seems to be a common problem for non-profits, all of which are suffering right now. I have gotten a few leads and followed up but so far nothing has worked out.”

Anyone who knows of space available in Collin County can contact Rubin at CollinCounty@YouthFirstTexas.org.

Collin County YFT will hold its regularly weekly meeting at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, before taking a week off for Dallas Pride. The group’s next meeting is at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26. The group has discontinued its Wednesday meetings until further noticed and instead will plan an activity once or twice a month. For more information, visit the website or the Facebook page.
