Can we not offer these kids a safe haven?

I spent some time reading these two threads here:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/11373873

The second thread got me thinking, can't we have an organization that provides places to live for these kids? If I had known that kid in the second link, he could have stayed in my second room. I live in NYC, he would have had a ball. I am sure there are other people, maybe some here in this group at DU that would take kids in who are in situations like these.

Is there no organization that tries to match kids who need places to stay with available homes and apartments?

1. K&R - this is exactly the kind of thing Cindi Lauper and Lady Gaga help set up.

 

I know Cindi actually started a foundation for gay and trans kids; I think Lady Gaga has made efforts of her own in a similar vein.

(Part of the reason why I dislike hearing gay people diss either one of them.)
