LGBTQ+  Advocacy

Every person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. Because this statement is at the heart of our services, the LGBTQ+ Services Program is available to help meet the needs of LGBTQ+ victims and survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault.


BRH provides shelter, support groups, outreach services, legal advocacy, and has partnerships throughout the community to meet the specific needs of LGBTQ+ people who have experienced sexual assault or intimate partner violence. Our services are completely confidential, with the option for anonymous help as well. For youth over 14, we do not have to communicate with parents or guardians. 


Explore this page to learn more about the programs and services available to LGBTQ+ individuals. You can also contact one of our LGBTQ+ Advocates by completing the form below or by calling the office at 715.834.9578
