Posted by Scupine on September 28, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling Center, located at Antioch University in Culver City, provides free LGBTQ-affirmative counseling to youth under 25 and their families in the greater Los Angeles area. Since its launch in 2012, Colors has provided more than 3,700 free counseling sessions.

In fact, Antioch University was founded in 1852 (!) by pioneering education reformer Horace Mann himself (!!) – and it is a joyfully progressive institution, genuinely devoted to social justice and community engagement. Antioch University also has campuses in Seattle; Santa Barbara,…

Since those dark days, she has developed and sold skincare products that detox and beautify the skin using only natural ingredients. But her company’s website reveals not just Schenfield’s products but also her calling: to keep cancer patients’ skin strong and healthy during cancer treatment by giving them free…
