A San Antonio organization. What sets us apart from similar organizations is our commitment to excellence by our ability to meet people where they are: whether recovering and desiring change, or homeless, incarcerated, abused/neglected, isolated, actively addicted. We go where no one else will to get people tested and linked to care.

Out Youth's Texas Gender & Sexuality Alliance (GSA) Network connects and empowers youth leaders statewide so they can fearlessly be themselves while making schools safer for everyone. Research has shown that the presence of student-led GSA clubs in schools not only has many positive effects on LGBTQIA2+ students, but all youth in schools with GSAs benefit from a learning environment where bigotry is unacceptable.
