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.
Weekly gatherings (with free supper) take place on Thursdays, from 6pm-8pm at Stamford Hospital Tully Center, thanks to our partnership with Stamford Health.
We are working to expand Lighthouse meetings to Greenwich and beyond in the near future.

Lighthouse in the Media
“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❤️” – Jessie, 22 year old former Lighthouse member.
