From the Former Chairman of Mulligan's Manor, Blake Loy 2015-2018
Do you remember the challenges of being a teenager? Now imagine those challenges plus being removed from your family’s home and placed in foster care, attending a different school, trying to make new friends all while trying to understand your gender and/or sexual identity. That’s a typical day for our youth at Mulligan’s Manor. Please join us in supporting these youth to achieve a happy and successful adolescence and transition into adulthood.
As the only LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Ally) group home in the State, and one of three in the Nation, our primary goal is to support youth who have experienced trauma and need individual attention. We live in a family home with House Parents who are on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We focus on building healthy and positive relationships that will support the youth in their future lives.
There are approximately 7,000 youth in the Child Protective Services system in Maricopa County, which means there could be hundreds of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Ally) children in need of respectful housing. We are located in the greater metropolitan Phoenix area and serve youth from all over the state. We work to keep the number of children-to-staff low while developing long-term relationships of support and encouragement.
Our long-term goal is to build a safe and positive community for our adolescents to remain until reunification with families is possible; or until they turn 18 years old.
Believing that every youth deserves a safe and supportive place to grow, Mulligan's Manor provides a loving family-oriented group home for at-risk GBTQA (Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Questining and Ally) youth, along with tools and programs designed to help them build life skills for a fulfilling and happy future.
All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential
