To me, Laing House means community, acceptance, and empowerment. Thehouse is a space where you can truly be your authentic self and be celebrated for it. The people here, both staff and members, work hard to create a beautiful community that puts safety, kindness, and wellness at the forefront of all that we do. It can be incredible to see what happens when someone spends time in a space like this, in fact, I have felt my own confidence grow from working here. Wewant all of our members to know they aren’t alone, that we’ve got their back, and that a future where you are not only surviving but thriving is possible.
