El Rescate is an initiative of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center that provides services to homeless LGBTQ youth between the ages of 12 to 24.
El Rescate- Basic Center Program provides culturally appropriate, identity-affirming support services to LGBTQ and allied youth ages 12 to 17 who face housing instability or homelessness, who have run away, or who are in need of safe place.
El Rescate- Transitional Living Program provides culturally appropriate identity-affirming housing to homeless LGBTQ and/or HIV-positive youth ages 18 to 24 through a continuum of solutions.
As part of both El Rescate programs, youth have access to the HIV prevention services offered by Vida/SIDA as well as Mental Health services offered by the Esperanza Program.
