In 1993, Long Island Crisis Center started PFY (formerly Pride for Youth) at a time when support and outreach to LGBTQ youth on Long Island were virtually non-existent. PFY has grown to encompass multiple programs & services addressing many of the needs of Long Island’s LGBTQ community and their families.

PFY is a service and an advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) young people through age 45. Our mission is to enhance the health and wellness of the LGBTQ community through education, supportive services and personal development in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens Counties.

PFY’s Programs and Services:

– Sexual Health Services

– Gender-Affirming Services

– Individual & Family Counseling

– Case Management

– Support Groups & Spaces

– Community Education & Professional Trainings

– Long Island’s COVID-19 Relief Program: Food, Housing, and Employment Assistance.
