Adolescent Counseling Services (ACS) Request:

Request: $2,000

ACS has not previously applied.

On behalf of Adolescent Counseling Services (ACS), thank you for the opportunity to submit this Letter of Request to the Northern California Rainbow Divers, asking for a grant of $2,000 to support ACS’s Outlet Program. Specifically, funding from Diving For Life (DFL) Foundation would support Outlet’s De Ambiente initiative, serving Latino youth with bilingual services designed to reduce HIV-risk, and optimize overall physical and mental health. Funds would also provide mental health/substance abuse services to those youth suffering from depression and/or drug/alcohol dependency.

About The Agency. The mission of ACS is to empower teens and their families in our community to realize their emotional and social potential through counseling and preventive education. To this end, ACS currently operates four core programs in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties: the On-Campus Counseling (OCC) Program, providing bilingual counseling and crisis intervention on eight public middle and high school campuses; the Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment (ASAT) Program, a State-certified outpatient facility; the After-School Counseling Program, providing outpatient mental health assessment, treatment; and, as of July 1, 2013, the Outlet Program, serving San Francisco Bay Area Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQQ) teens and allies. ACS provides a majority of underserved, low-income children with direct and timely access to - often life-saving - mental health services and treatment. Over the past 38 years, the agency has served hundreds of thousands of children and their family members, primarily exceeding all measurable objectives.  Last year alone, ACS reached over 5,000 youth and their family members through direct services and community education. Teens in our programs ended their use of drugs and alcohol, increased their grades, decreased their feelings of stress, depression and isolation and increased their psycho-social functioning. In the coming year, with the addition of the Outlet Program, ACS anticipates nearly doubling its client numbers, reaching 10,000 area youth, parents, and concerned community members.

About the Program. Founded in 1997, the Outlet Program’s mission is to empower LGBTQQ youth and to build safe and accepting communities through support, education and advocacy. Prior to joining ACS (on July 1, 2013), Outlet was housed at the Community Health Awareness Council (CHAC) in Mountain View, and, prior to that, at the Palo Alto YWCA. Outlet’s affiliation with ACS will allow them to reach more youth in East Palo Alto, Redwood City and other parts of the Mid-Peninsula/San Mateo County where services are greatly needed. Both ACS and Outlet will continue to enjoy an important partnership with CHAC, and Outlet will continue to provide support groups and other services located at CHAC, as it currently does.

California has the second highest rate of HIV infections in the U.S., while Santa Clara County (SCC), one of our target geographies, is among the top 10 HIV/AIDS counties in California. Youth of color and young men who have sex with men (MSM) continue to be most at risk. In fact, among Latino MSM, most new infections occur in the youngest age group (13 – 29). Socioeconomic factors such as poverty, migration patterns, lower educational attainment, limited access to health care and/or language barriers contribute to Latino HIV infection rates. Undocumented immigrants are less likely to access HIV prevention services, get an HIV test, or receive adequate treatment and care if living with HIV. In addition, the reduction in funding for HIV prevention programs in Santa Clara County puts YGBLM at higher risk for HIV/STD infections.

Furthermore, research suggests gay and lesbian teens are more than twice as likely to report symptoms of depression than their heterosexual counterparts and three times more likely to report a history of suicidality (Journal of Adolescent Health, 2011). In fact, LGBTQQ youth account for up to 30% of completed youth suicides. Besides suicide, the lack of social acceptance that LGBTQQ youth experience can also lead to other dangerous, self-destructive behavior. Research done by the University of Pittsburgh found that LGBTQQ youth are 190% (on average) more likely to resort to substance abuse, including an increase of 340% for bisexual youth and 400% for lesbian youth. When LGBTQQ youth use drugs to deal with their pain, mental health issues ‒ such as depression ‒ can be aggravated.

The goal of the Outlet Program is to create communities where LGBTQQ youth are embraced, empowered, and celebrated, not simply tolerated. To achieve this, Outlet supports vulnerable LGBTQQ populations in the areas of mental illness, substance abuse, youth, transgender health, as well as HIV prevention. Outlet combines direct support services, leadership development, and community trainings to have a deep impact toward optimizing both health and social justice for LGBTQQ youth within a local community – not only transforming individual lives, but the environments and institutions that make up their community. Concurrently, Outlet works within community institutions to change how LGBTQQ youth are treated in their schools, homes, doctor’s offices, and workplaces. Outlet is the only organization between San Francisco and San Jose that provides LGBTQQ youth with counseling and health-education, as well as community, leadership training and advocacy. 

How Funds Will Be Used. Funds will be used to support Outlet’s De Ambiente initiative, as well as for mental health counseling and substance abuse treatment, as needed. The total De Ambiente program budget for FY 2013-14 is $68,278. A grant of $2,000 would provide direct services to 25 De Ambiente bi-weekly group participants, with an additional 25 receiving mental health/substance abuse services.

De Ambiente is the only bilingual (Spanish-English) support and leadership development program for young (13-24) LGBTQQ Latinos in California, and part of only a handful nationally. De Ambiente seeks to address the overall health and well-being of this population of youth, in particular, undocumented, queer young Latino men (“undocuqueer.”) This population of young men are an identified high risk and hard to reach target population for HIV/STDs, as well as other health related issues. With a holistic approach to support, De Ambiente includes 1) twice-monthly youth groups, 2) community-based events, 3) leadership building opportunities including a service learning project, 4) outreach, and 5) mentorship by adults– all relating to positive reinforcement of queer identities as Latinos, healthy decision-making, HIV prevention, and sexual health education.  What Outlet strives for with De Ambiente is to support the full health and well-being of Latino youth with a culturally competent framework that intersects race/ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation/gender identity. De Ambiente facilitators engage participants in reflective dialogue that promotes critical thinking and self-observation on matters of crucial importance to the group members, including the socio-cultural factors that contribute to their high risk status. De Ambiente’s approach to HIV/STD prevention is youth-led, research-based, and addresses the foundational factors that affect unsafe sexual behavior.

In addition to the services provided through De Ambiente, Outlet also offers accessible counseling through ACS’ OCC and After-School Counseling Programs. Therapeutic interns at ACS are Master’s level or higher, are selected from a competitive pool of applicants, and are supervised by licensed clinicians.  Therapists from these two programs working specifically with Outlet clientele agree to work closely with Outlet staff to ensure treatment is sensitive and appropriate.  For youth in immediate crisis, counselors are available to support them and their families.

The primary goal of the project is to reduce new infections of HIV/STDs among YGBLM. To achieve this: 65 unduplicated youth will be served through De Ambiente bi-weekly groups, of which 6 peer leaders will lead the service-learning project. Through outreach and social events, an additional 85 youth will be reached with prevention messaging. 400 high school students will receive HIV/STD prevention workshops, and 150 students will receive UNIQUE LGBTQ sensitivity trainings, co-led by peer leaders, for a total of 700 youth directly impacted, measured through in-take forms and surveys.

By supporting Outlet, funders such as the Northern California Rainbow Divers will be providing potentially life-saving, and certainly life-changing, services to teens at high-risk for a myriad of issues, including bullying, substance abuse and depression, just to name a few.  Thank you for your consideration of support for ACS’s Outlet Program.

Sincerely, Anthony Ross, Outlet Program Director

Shanti Project Funding Request

Funding Requested $2,000

Shanti has not previously applied

“Melinda has always been there for me over the past 10 years, whenever I needed her, no matter what the situation.”

                                                                                                -Bruce, HIV Services Client

Shanti exists to enhance the quality of life, health and well-being of people living with life threatening illnesses, including HIV/AIDS. The Shanti Project respectfully requests a grant of $2,000 from the Northern California Rainbow Divers to train 8 new Volunteer Caregivers to be matched one-on-one with clients in our HIV Services Program. Shanti’s Peer Support Volunteer trainings, held 3-4 times a year, build the skills of new Volunteer Caregivers who provide one-on-one emotional support and practical assistance to Shanti clients living with HIV. 

Founded in 1974, the Shanti Project was one of the first-ever volunteer organizations to work with terminally-ill individuals, and later became one the very first community-based HIV/AIDS organizations in the world.  Each year, Shanti supports nearly 1,100 people living with HIV (PLWH) in San Francisco.  Of these clients, approximately 88% identify as LGBT and 4% identify as transgender. The PLWH who come to Shanti for help often do so because they have minimal support as they face their illness. For these clients, the continuum of services offered by Shanti are a safety net that helps them access medical services and navigate complex health care systems.  Our services target some of San Francisco’s most disenfranchised and at-risk populations: the dually and triply diagnosed (with mental health and/or substance use issues), the homeless or marginally housed, homebound and aging populations, communities of color, women (including the transgendered population), and individuals co-infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and HIV.

 

Shanti’s Peer Support Volunteer program is San Francisco’s oldest HIV-centered volunteer program, one that has remained vital and health-affirming even as HIV treatments have improved. This is important because not everyone who has HIV is able to take care of themselves, especially when faced with multiple health issues and challenges related to their socioeconomic status.  To address this, volunteers who we match with clients meet with their assigned client for 2-6 hours a week. Volunteers provide supportive listening, conversation, and companionship (emotional support) and light housekeeping, errands, laundry, cooking, pet care, and accompaniment to purchase groceries or medical related supplies (practical support). They also help clients emerge from isolation by attending social activities with them; Shanti clients have access to free tickets through our Activities Desk for these social activitiesundefinedthese include concerts, live theater, and museums. 

Volunteers obtain valuable skills and practice through our Peer Support Training, a 24-hour intensive that covers topics including HIV 101, breast cancer 101, cultural competency, boundaries, the Shanti Model of Peer Support™, building quality relationships, suicide ideation, clinical issues, psychosocial issues, and the harm reduction model. This level of advanced training is necessary for the in-depth emotional and practical support our volunteers provide to our clients. Shanti trains an average of 85 new Volunteer Caregivers per year, who collectively provide over 13,000 hours of service over a one-year period.  Each 24-hour Volunteer Training cycle costs Shanti approximately $10,000 and 50 hours to implement. 

Shanti’s Peer Support Volunteer program is a cost-effective and unique approach to increasing San Francisco’s capacity to care for some of its most vulnerable residents living with HIV.  In addition, the experience of being a Volunteer Caregiver has proven transformative for countless individuals who participate.  Jonathan, a Shanti HIV Services volunteer, recounts his experience as a Shanti volunteer below:

My client was extremely sick and had several close calls during visits to the hospital in the first 6 months of our match.  His health was a roller-coaster but fortunately, through medicine and an attitude that this could be survived, he made it through.  Witnessing his journey has been a life-learning experience for me too.  Being present, watching and listening to his stories have been great lessons for me.  It's been an amazing way to step out of one's own day-to-day concerns and worries and to see a bigger picture - a perspective on others' plights; a powerful way to lessen the focus on things that are 'all-about-me' and my own day-to-day.

A grant of $2,000 from the Rainbow Divers would allow us to train 8 new volunteers like Jonathan, who would provide over 1,200 hours of support to underserved PWLH in the coming year.  We hope you will agree that our program is well aligned with the Rainbow Diver’s focus on meeting the health needs of the LGBT community, and we would be honored to partner with you. 

Sincerely, Kaushik Roy, Executive Director

HALO Funding Request

Funding Requested: $3,000

Last Year HALO received $3,000 in DFL Funds

We (Brad Carter and Fred Hodgson) have been NCRD family members since November 2012.  We would like to nominate an organization, which benefited from a Diving for Life grant last year.

The organization is called HALO (HIV/AIDS Local Outreach) and provides funding for health-related services to the HIV/AIDS community in Nevada County, where we live.  HALO was launched in 2010 by Unity in the Gold Country Spiritual Center of Grass Valley – a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (tax ID# 44-066875) – to address gaps in funding and to help meet the urgent needs of currently 107 individuals and their families affected by HIV/AIDS in Nevada County.  

HALO funds are utilized when other means are unavailable and have provided financial support for dental care, medication, eye care, food, hearing aids, clothing and transportation to medical appointments.

Patty Cambra, HALO funds coordinator for the AIDS/HIV community in Nevada County, tells two stories of how HALO funds have helped two individuals. “One client shared with me that she was so appreciative of the money to buy new tires for her car that she broke down in tears saying she was humbly grateful -- she had no idea how she would ever had been able to afford them.”  Patty continues, “Another client was very worried how she was going to buy back-to-school clothes for her son since he had outgrown his worn pants, and his shoes had holes in them -- he was embarrassed to go to school.  We gave them a voucher to buy what he needed.  HALO makes a difference.”

Besides requesting grants for HALO, we (Brad and Fred) have raised a total of $19,095 through fundraisers in our home since 2010.  100% of HALO funds are devoted to supporting the 95 adults and 12 children in Nevada County affected by HIV/AIDS.  These funds do not support salaries, administrative costs or overhead.  HALO monies are used exclusively for people living with HIV/AIDS and their families in our community.  Additionally 22 volunteers donate over 300 hours per year to raise funds for HALO.

We are seeking a $3,000 sponsorship donation of Diving For Life funds to add to the fundraising efforts currently in place for HALO.  We appreciate your consideration of making a generous donation to this worthy cause.  

Sincerely, Brad Carter and Fred Hodgson

Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County Funding Request

Funding Requested: $3,500

RCC has previously received $18, 282 in DFL funds

Four afternoons a week, a rowdy collection of teenagers gather in a room full of donated couches at the Rainbow Community Center (RCC) in concord CA. They eat junk food, put their feet on the furniture, and chatter excitedly about their favorite movies and music and check their phones relentlessly. They also speak out about their family dynamics, high school, their college and military prospects, their dreams, their pain. The fact that they all identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender questioning or queer (LGBTQ) brings them together, but they are utterly typical American adolescents.  Their hopes and desires for the future run parallel to those of their straight schoolmates. Some represent their family’s first generation born in the US. Others live in households that struggle to stay afloat in the current economy. Some reside in foster care and a lucky few have parents who have become fierce advocates for their children. As if being a teen isn’t difficult enough, these youth also must decide if or when they should come out or transition, and what that might mean. Some must choose every single day whether to be themselves or to be safe. The RCC provides about the only safe place where they aren’t forced to make that choice.

                 Most of these youth refer to their lives “before and after” they found the RCC. Many knew no one like themselves and lived in fear that friends or family would learn their secret and reject them. Many say they felt isolated, alone and filled with shame. At the RCC, they discover and create a community of supportive peers and mentors. They participate in workshops about relevant topics, such as last month’s workshops on “Masculinity,” “Femininity” and “how to be a Trans Ally”.  They also go on field trips to LGBT-friendly workplaces, organize and perform in widely-attended talent shows, and help staff plan quarterly dances and create curricula for workshops for their own families. At the RCC they learn leadership and life skills that we hope will help them navigate the most difficult of life’s transitions. 

Our Youth Mentors, the staff that work directly with the youth, were once themselves youth group members and their life experience has proved invaluable. Under the supervision of our Youth Program Manager/Social Worker, mentors are trained to recognize when the youth need additional help and then refer youth to case managers or counseling staff.

            In addition to our work in our own facility the RCC is the lead agency for the Contra Costa County LGBTQ Youth Collaborative. We have created a coalition of service and health care providers, schools administrators and faith-based organizations, united in creating schools, churches and families that are more accepting of LGBTQ youth. One important component of this program entails signed agreements with two local school districts that allow RCC staff to provide services on five high school campuses.  Our staff and interns are now allowed to provide individual counseling, coming out groups, history lessons and health education services during school hours to LGBTQ youth on these schools campuses. We believe that this is a ground-breaking partnership between public schools and an LGBTQ nonprofit.

Our Request

     Direct outreach within local high schools is a critical component of this program.  The RCC is requesting $3,500 to recruit and train a cohort of at least six Community College and high school-aged Youth Leaders to become peer educators. These Youth Leaders will be trained to deliver anti-bullying and LGBTQ youth empowerment programming on local campuses. In cultivating these skills, youth group members will learn interpersonal and activist skills that will last a lifetime. They will create a stronger social support network of both LGBTQ youth and non-LGBTQ youth in our communities. Their presentations will increase awareness and utilization of the RCC’s youth program by putting a friendly human face on our agency. For LGBTQ high school students who may still be afraid to reach out for help, this new awareness can make all the difference. It also allows current youth program members the opportunity to start giving back to their own community. RCC intends to recruit and train a cohort of at six to ten high school-aged Youth Leaders to become peer educators. These student leaders will be trained to help develop and deliver anti-bullying and LGBTQ youth empowerment programming at the RCC and on local school campuses. In cultivating these skills, our own youth group members will learn interpersonal and activist skills that will last a lifetime. They will help create a stronger social support network of both LGBTQ youth and non-LGBTQ youth who live in our communities. And these public presentations will increase awareness about vital Rainbow Community Center services such as family and individual counseling, by putting a friendly human face on our agency. For those LGBTQ high school students who might still be afraid to reach out for help, this new awareness can make all the difference. And it affords people we have already reached the opportunity to become vested in and start giving back to their own community.

Funding from Diving for Life will be combined with donations from foundation and individual donors to support training the Youth Leaders and providing them with the necessary supplies, training materials and transportation needed to continue operating our youth programs. The training for Youth Leaders will include a minimum of ten workshops per year organized on topics that include social justice issues, advocacy work and community organizing. Social media will play a major role in the dissemination of their message. Their preparation will be thorough, and they will be coached by Youth Mentors and their Program Manager. Youth Leaders will play an active role in the creations of the outreach plan. As their skills increase, their experiences and input will be incorporated into the program.

Trevor Project Funding Request

Funding Requested: $10,000

Trevor Project has previously received $31,695 in DFL funds

Introduction

In 2010 there was a terrible string of heavily-publicized youth suicides. These sad events brought a significant amount of media attention to lesbian, gay, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth issues and increased the public awareness of Trevor’s suicide prevention programs. As a result, the need and requests for our life-saving services has grown. We at The Trevor Project continue to work to meet the needs of the of LGBTQ youth in crisis and will do so until the day that our services are no longer needed.

Request

The Trevor Project would like to thank the Diving for Life Foundation for its past grant funds and is pleased to present a renewed proposal for $10,000 to support Trevor’s expanding educational capacity in San Francisco. As we establish a stronger regional presence in the Bay Area we will be able to recruit and train more volunteers, and establish stronger community partnerships, in order to reach the growing number of LGBTQ young people and their peers who need our help. Previous contributions from Diving For Life have allowed Trevor to continue its life-saving and life-affirming work, providing young people with the resources and crisis intervention, to help them live healthy and productive lives.

Statement of Need

Trevor is interested in increasing its educational programming capacity in the San Francisco Bay Area. While San Francisco is a hub of LGBTQ advocacy and activism, statistics from young people in this city collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are surprising. According to a 2011 survey, one out of three gay or lesbian students in San Francisco reportedly attempted suicide, and one out of every two transgender students reportedly attempted suicide.

These statistics were captured in a project developed by the Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) at the CDC, which interviewed nearly 5,000 San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) middle and high school students. As a result of these staggering reports, we at Trevor are motivated to increase our programmatic capacity in the San Francisco Bay area by implementing additional educational outreach initiatives. Creating safe spaces through education in schools and community centers across the country is vital for LGBTQ youth. As evident in several recent studies, LGBTQ young people often face disproportionate challenges in their search for social approval and acceptance. Their experiences may involve a variety of negative triggers such as sexual harassment, bullying, and rejection. According to the survey, “58 percent of middle school students who identified as transgender reported being threatened or injured with a weapon at school the prior year, whereas only 5 percent of their straight classmates experienced the same.” These substantial triggers can lead to depression and self-harm such as drug use, intentional self-injury, unsafe sexual practices, and suicidal crisis.

In SFUSD, LGBT students reported a significantly different experience when compared to their straight peers. A disproportionate number of LGBT students reported using drugs and alcohol, as well as missing school to avoid perceived violence. LGBT young people also reported lower scholastic performances when compared to their non-LGBT peers.  The survey on SFUSD students found that 11 percent of the district’s high school students self-identified as LGB or questioning, and 1.6 percent identified as transgender. While the survey was administered at 91 school sites across the country, SFUSD is the only participating school district to include items on sexual orientation and gender identity in both their middle and high school surveys.

Education Programs

There is a pressing need for focused LGBTQ safe space creation and crisis intervention outreach within San Francisco middle and high schools. Trevor’s education department, Trevor Education, is equipped to provide youth and adult trainings as well as opportunities to build these safe spaces in schools and communities nationwide.

Trevor Lifeguard Workshop: The Trevor Lifeguard Workshop is an on-site training program that teaches youth how to create safe spaces for LGBTQ young people and their allies. The Lifeguard Workshop has recently been listed on the Suicide Prevention Resource Center’s Best Practice Registry, making it the only LGBTQ youth specific workshop to be listed in this nationally regarded project. Trevor has presented thousands of workshops over 14 years and trained tens of thousands of young people, educators, and community leaders.

Trevor Resource Kit: As demand for Trevor’s educational programs grows in communities far removed from our education offices, we have developed the Trevor Resource Kit to deliver information on our life-saving and life-affirming services. In recent years, Trevor has sent more than 5,000 resource kits free of charge to classrooms all over the country. We have developed a new multi-media teaching tool to include in the resource kit - a digital presentation of the Lifeguard Workshop. The kit also includes an evaluation tool to gather classroom feedback and information that can ensure the program meets its objectives.

Adult Trainings: Trevor CARE (Connect, Accept, Respond, and Empower) and Trevor Ally are training programs for youth-serving adults. The trainings provide an overview of LGBTQ youth and the unique issues they face, and teach of the different environmental stressors that contribute to LGBTQ youth’s heightened risk for suicide. Trevor Ally and Trevor CARE Trainings cover research and popular methods to help adults identify and reduce the risk of suicide, as well as provide steps educators and other adults can take to promote a positive environment for all youth.

Our educational trainings can also increase community and school-wide awareness of our direct crisis services such as our 24/7 Trevor Lifeline and our digital crisis intervention programs: TrevorChat, TrevorText, Ask Trevor, and our popular LGBTQ, youth-focused social media site, TrevorSpace.

Trevor Capacity in the San Francisco Bay Area

To directly address the issues reported by LGBTQ young people in San Francisco schools, Trevor is interested in expanding its presence in Northern California. We currently have offices in West Hollywood, CA, New York City, and Washington D.C., and a crisis services space located in the Castro district in San Francisco. As a result of a recent California state grant, Trevor will have a full-time education coordinator located in the Northern California (NoCal) area.

With support the Diving For Life Foundation, we can leverage grants to focus on SFUSD and Bay Area community centers, and on creating partnerships with other area organizations. Over the last three years we have built a relationship with the school district and local schools, and with a staff person in San Francisco they will be able to build the relationships necessary to get Trevor Education suicide prevention programming in the schools. Trevor has the programmatic infrastructure already in place to deliver a number of educational resources including the Trevor Lifeguard Workshop, Trevor Resource Kit and Trevor’s adult training programs. Trevor could also offer volunteer training and provide programmatic and outreach education services to the middle school and high school students in the Bay Area. San Francisco is a Trevor Ambassador City, which means it’s a pre-established hub of Trevor volunteer activity, events, and trainings aimed at keeping the local community engaged and establishing new relationships.
