About Us

Our Mission…

  • Safe Space NOVA is dedicated to providing a safe, accepting, and supportive environment to combat social stigmas, bullying, and other challenges faced by LGBT+ youth.

Protecting Against…

  • According to the latest study released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), LGBTQ+ youth are at increased risk for suicidal thoughts and behaviors, suicide attempts, and suicide. In addition, LGBTQ+ youth were more likely than heterosexual youth to report high levels of bullying and substance abuse. The goal of Safe Space is to protect our youth from these perils by providing a positive environment and welcoming staff that embrace, uplift, and encourage them. Our ultimate goal is to ensure 14–18 year olds in the Northern Virginia area have access to an organization and activities that promote equality.
