I'm looking to start an organization to help confront the problem of teenage LGBTQA homelessness due to rejection and disownment by family due to sexuality or gender identity. I understand, at 15, that's impossible, but I would like to at least have a plan ready for when I'm an adult and able to start the charity.
i'd like my organization to be able to open up shelters specifically for LGBTQA teens, as well as provide counseling for teens in those struggling with sexuality and gender identity, be able to provide resources for those who are at-risk for homelessness due to sexuality or gender identity and help both those who are currently on the streets or still at home finish school, as those who are gay or transgender are 2/3 less likely to finish high school. Furthermore, I'd like to educate others about the issue of teen LGBTQA homelessness.
This is an issue close to my heart, as I'm a bisexual teen and many of my friends are LGBTQA, but I'm completely lost on how to start such an organization. Does anyone have any resources I can turn to, or any experience they can speak from? Any advie would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not one of those people who believes in harassing or hurting people who are gay or bi, but at the same time, those conditions are not natural or normal. I don't believe in working to accommodate an abnormality. I believe in teaching and helping but not through delusion.0
