Happy Pride Month! At Walkies Through History, we believe strongly that Love is Love, and offer our support and allyship to the LGBTQ+ community (and all marginalized populations, for that matter). This house in Sacramento, California was built in 1907, and we’re going to tell you about its most recent history because it’s important.
Associated with the Sacramento LGBT Community Center, this is the STEP Shelter. According to the website: “Short-Term Transitional Emergency Placement Programs (STEP): This program provides 24-hour shelter in community with an average 90-day stay that includes meals, clothing, and transportation assistance for youth ages 18-24 who have been victims of crime. Youth will receive assistance from case managers and advocates to obtain identification documents, access medical and mental health services, and navigate next step in their transition to more permanent housing.”
