During the month of June, Devereux celebrates National Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender Pride (LGBTQ) Month along with LGBTQ rights organizations across the country. This is a time for both reflection and celebration of the progress that has been made for LGBTQ equality in America, but also to remember the work that remains to be done.

Research confirms that individuals who are LGBTQ—particularly adolescents—are considered to be at greater risk of becoming victims of harassment, bullying and violence. Some reports estimate that LGBTQ youth are four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual counterparts.

Devereux is committed to providing outstanding services, grounded in cultural competency, to all the individuals we serve, including gender expansive youth, and we continue to cultivate a culture of competency in all the communities where we live and work.
