The service provides programming and supports prioritizing the needs and the wellbeing of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and 2 Spirit youth who are 12 to 29 years of age.

“The idea behind Qlink is to prioritize the needs of LGBTQ2S+ youth and their families through increased access to mental health programs, services, and supports that strive to improve emotional and social strengths among LGBTQ+ youth,” said Jessica McCulloch, board member of Windsor Pride Community.

Nearly $715,000 in funding over the next three years is coming from the Provincial Trillium Foundation.

“This investment by the Ontario Trillium Foundation will provide much needed funding so that LGBTQ2S+ youth ages 12-29 in Windsor-Essex have access to programming that will provide important supports and programs,” said MPP Lisa Gretzky.

A collaborative with a plaque to mark the funding and new programming as a result of receiving a grant from the Foundation in August 2020 was presented during a Friday morning news conference.
