You Are Worthy’s mission is to:
Empower youth and adults of color, encourage life-changing activity, and promote critical thinking to ensure that all are able to live a fulfilled life of worthiness.
Support groups for at risk youth of color are needed, because Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) youth of color attempt to commit suicide three times the rate of their white counterparts. In addition, many parents of color lack knowledge needed to support their children having same-sex attractions and/or desiring to be a different gender. You Are Worthy, Inc is the first organization in the St. Louis area specifically designated for youth and adults of color.
Our founder started this organization for the little girl inside of her that wanted to be accepted and needed a safe space to understand why she was different. Her biggest obstacle growing up was working through feelings of being ostracized. After years of counseling, she is ready to help others who may be going through similar issues. She wished, as a teenager, that there was a safe space to learn about herself, different experiences, and how she could live a life free of shame and without the fear of going to hell.
