DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – The LGBTQ Center of Durham received news of a six-figure funding increase right in the middle of Pride Month.

"It feels extra sweet for the timing. We were in New York City at a conference on ending youth homelessness when I first got the announcement," the Center's executive director Helena Cragg said. "We were up the street from Stonewall. It just felt that much more resonant to get the news at that moment.

"Then with this being local pride and the first year we're celebrating it is just icing on top of the cake."

LGBT Pride Month takes place in June in honor the protesters involved in the Stonewall riots on June 28 and 29, 1969.

"If we can capture and meet the needs of young people so much earlier, we can break the cycles that would have them face family rejection and not know how to handle it, or get into a cycle to leads them towards homelessness," Cragg said.
