ReachOUT - Multilingual Services for Newcomer LGBTT2IQQ Youth in Toronto
The ReachOUT Newcomer Network is a project that provides free multilingual settlement services to youth in Toronto who are Permanent Residents in Canada, including Government Assisted Refugees. Their primary focus is youth who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirited, intersex, queer and questioning (LGBTT2IQQ) youth, and their allies, friends and/or families.
