Mission Statement

Diversity House is a service provider and an advocate for LGBT homeless youth with a mission to provide transitional housing, intensive case management and supportive services in order to enhance the health, wellness and cultural competency of LGBT youth through education and youth development.

Community Resource For All

Diversity House strives to be a resource for the entire community. Our resource list connects advocates and those in need with the tools that exist to help them.

Changing Residents' Lives

Diversity House residents complete a 12- to 18-month program that uses 24/7 case management, including counseling on finances, education, healthcare and more.


Supporting Diversity House in the fight against youth homelessness is essential to developing the community.


Various volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year, particularly around events like the Baton Rouge Sleep-out. Let us know if you are interested in volunteering through our contact form.



Donations of gently used home items, unopened toiletries, cleaning supplies and gently worn clothing help us support Diversity House residents. Please contact us to arrange your donation.



Your monetary donations help in all aspects of operations. Estimated operating costs average $140 per resident per day. Both corporate sponsorships and individual donations are accepted, and all donations are tax deductible.
