Lighthouse is a peer-to-peer social support group for LGBTQ youth and their allies. Our meetings are relaxed and social in nature. A complimentary supper is served in a safe, confidential setting. No bullying is ever allowed and everyone is given a chance to be heard.
 
For Fall 2021 and Winter 2022, Lighthouse LGBTQ youth group meetings will be held every Tuesday at the Avon Theatre in downtown Stamford at 272 Bedford St. Greenwich meetings will be held on Thursdays on the campus of Christ Church at
254 East Putnam Ave.  Lighthouse signs will point you towards our meeting location. Both weekly meetings are held from 5:00 to 7:00pm.  
 
All LGBTQ youth and their allies are welcome and everyone must respect social distancing and the need to wear a mask indoors at all times.
 
For questions please call 203-661-1911 or email Lighthouse Program Coordinator, Joe Belisle, at lighthouse@kidsincrisis.org. Also, check out Facebook.com/KICLighthouse

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Lighthouse serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) teens and their allies with a welcoming, safe space weekly meeting. Lighthouse encourages LGBTQ youth to live their best, healthiest and most authentic lives.

Teens can drop in to share life experiences and feelings, socialize, snack, and share common bonds, in Lighthouse’s confidential, non-threatening environment. Lighthouse also hosts guest speakers, trips, barbecues, parties and movie nights.

Lighthouse empowers LGBTQ youth to clarify issues, gain skills and resiliency, and envision and seek healthy, productive, and fulfilling adult lives.

Lighthouse offers a beacon to LGBTQ teens in Greenwich, Stamford

I’m so incredibly proud of my dear friend and mentor Joe Belisle for all of the amazing work he is doing at Kids In Crisis. Rainbow Cafe, which has evolved into Lighthouse, was such an invaluable resource for me as a queer youth trying to navigate high school. More importantly, though, it was integral in helping me develop my own unique identity, and it gave me a community I am so proud to be a part of as well as some truly incredible lifelong friendships. Thank you Joe, Debbie, and Kids in Crisis for the unwavering support you continue to provide LGBTQ youth in our community ❤️”
