Safe Space Cape Opens Friday September 14th

Monday, September 10, 2018
Safe Space Cape is opening on Friday September 14th. It is a welcoming space for LGBTQ+ Youth, Allies and Advocates to gather, learn, and grow as individuals and as a community.

This past Saturday, the 8th, Safe Space Cape held its Open House to introduce the program to the community. This coming Friday, September 14th, will be the first day the program is open to the public. Safe Space Cape is part of the LGBTQ+ Outreach Ministry of Christ Episcopal Church - Red Door Jubilee Center. The program seeks to fill the gaps in support experienced by LGBTQ+ youth, their allies and advocates within the community. The program offers a physical meeting space as well as an environment where youth of the community and their supporters can exist free of judgement and ridicule.

Sessions for the program will be held every Friday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, at 38 North Fountain Street in Cape Girardeau. During each session participants will have the opportunity to participate in structured group activities; educational as well as entertaining, along with free time to explore their own areas of interest and begin building friendships. The program's coordinators are hopeful to expand the hours that the program is open to the public as the program grows. If you have questions about the program please contact SafeSpaceCape@gmail.com. We hope to see and meet you soon!
