Lucie’s Place

LGBTQ+ Courage Resource!

Lucie’s Place

  • Each year since its opening in 2015, 50-70 LGBTQ young adults receive life-saving services and support at our drop-in center in the heart of downtown Little Rock.
  • Visitors are provided bus passes, cell phones & minutes, toiletries, clothes, case management, counseling, and HIV testing, free of charge, and are encouraged to stay to work on job applications, resumes, continuing education, or, sometimes most importantly: just to hang out when they have nowhere else to go.
  • For many, Lucie’s Place is the only physical place in town where they can go without fear of discrimination, harassment or violence.

Location – 300 S. Spring St., Suite 715, Little Rock, AR 72201

Contact – Email or phone (501) 508-5005

Mission

Founded in 2012, Lucie’s Place is a 501(c)3 that serves as the state’s only LGBTQ-specific shelter, and one of only a very few in the South. Lucie’s Place has one mission: To ensure lifelong acceptance, stability, and success for LGBTQ young adults experiencing homelessness in Central Arkansas.

Focus is on LGBT young adults, ages 18-25, providing safe living environments, job training, and counseling services. They have eight beds at their shelter.
