Whenever you need help — from getting a nutritious meal, to finding safe housing, from getting your GED, to finding out more about HIV, all without judgment — you can turn to HMI. Whether you're still in school or not, our Youth Services Department offers an alternative safe space on weekday afternoons and evenings, and programs to help gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth be creative and grow — through programs in the arts and culture, health and wellness, academic enrichment, and job readiness. Our Supportive Services Department is staffed with counselors who are professional, who care, and will listen to you and give you the individual help you need.
