Our drop-ins are a space for local Charlotte County youth 20 and under to connect, have fun, and get the tools they need to succeed. We regularly paint, play games, watch movies, and much more.

We cultivate a space of safety and respect, one where youth can express themselves without fear of judgement. 

Drop-In Hours & Location
 

Our regular drop-ins are held on the 4th Wednesday of the month from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the Mid-County Library, 

US41 and 2050 Forrest Nelson Blvd in Port Charlotte, Florida.

Caregivers and family over 21 are welcome from 4:00 pm to 4:15 pm to become familiar with the space, talk with volunteers, and get resources.

Youth and volunteers only from 4:15 to 6:00 pm.

Hours are staffed by adult volunteers made up of allies and LGBTQ+ community members.
