Actively Stand Up
CACTA believes that we can help and contribute in many other ways in addition to financial help and we ask our beneficiaries to give us actions that we can all get involved with.
Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13–24.
The mission of The Trevor Project is to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people. The organization works to fulfill this mission through four strategies:
- Provide crisis counseling to LGBTQ young people thinking of suicide.
- Offer resources, supportive counseling and a sense of community to LGBTQ young people to reduce the risk that they become suicidal.
- Educate young people and adults who interact with young people on LGBTQ-competent suicide prevention, risk detection and response.
- Advocate for laws and policies that will reduce suicide among LGBTQ young people.
