Essex County LGBT RAIN Foundation


This November will mark 1 FULL YEAR in OPERATION at the Essex LGBT RAIN Foundation home. We’ve had a wonderful and challenging year, serving homeless LGBT young adults and helping them get to the next level of stability in their lives!!

This work could not have happened if it wasn’t for a few committed people in our community and we’ve selected 5 KEY people that have offered to help out in any way possible and we just want to say THANK YOU!!!


  • CJ Prince of North Jersey Pride
  • Andrea Bowen formerly of Garden State Equality
  • Beatrice Simpkins, Director of Operations for RAIN
  • Christopher Burtt of Get Well Games
  • Kevin E. Taylor, Pastor of Unity Fellowship Church, NewArk

We hope you can join us on this night as we thank and honor such wonderful, committed individuals that support this mission and who works tirelessly to shed light on this program and the work we do.

We can not stop our mission until everyone that needs a safe place to BE, has a safe place to BE!
