Drop-in Center

The JQY Paul Austin and Dalip Girdhar (The P. Austin Family Foundation) Drop-in Center

The Drop-in Center offers a safe and free weekly space where LGBTQ teens and youth can come and:

• Check in with licensed social workers

• Meet others they can relate to

• Participate in support groups & workshops

• Have access to health and safety resources

• Enjoy a hot Kosher meal (this part is on hold while we're virtual but click here to find out how to get free Kosher meals in NYC)

• Be part of an affirming community

• Know they are not alone.

Each week, the Drop-in Center features a unique program (support groups, yoga, game night, LGBTQ book club, and more!) which takes place alongside drop-in hours. Feel free to join for the program, hang out during drop-in hours, or both! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more information on our weekly programming!

WHERE We're currently virtual AND in-person (when we can safely gather in-person)

When we're in-person, the NYC Drop-in Center is at 1460 Broadway • New York, NY • 10036  – in Times Square and easily accessible by public transportation! If you need help with travel to the Drop-in Center, contact us here!
