The LGBT Community Fund at The Chicago Community Trust—an endowment-based fund that strategically supports non-profit organizations that provide essential services to Chicago's LGBT community—recently completed its second round of community grants to eight local organizations operating throughout the Chicagoland area.

The Fund, using a commissioned 2019 Community Needs Assessment to guide the process, will make grants to the following organizations:

—ACLU/Roger Baldwin Foundation ( studying trans-inclusive healthcare by local governments );

—AgeOptions ( Pride Cafes for seniors in suburban Cook County );

—Chicago House Social Service Agency ( expand legal clinics on the South Side );

—H.O.M.E. ( additional services to its LGBT residents and staff );

—Legal Council for Health Justice ( legal services on the South Side with Howard Brown );

—McDermott Center/Haymarket ( trauma therapy/care expansion for LGBT clients );

—Sithub ( trans-employment initiative ); and

—Youth Service of Northbrook and Glenbrook ( expansion of its youth services program ).

Since its inception in 2010, when civic leaders joined together in a commitment to address a broad range of needs within the LGBT community, the LGBT Community Fund has awarded more than $1.25 million dollars to over 40 organizations.
