Shattered Lives welcomes Founder and Executive Director of True Colors, Robin McHaelen

True Colors is a non-profit organization that works with other social service agencies, schools, organizations, and within communities to ensure that the needs of sexual and gender minority youth are both recognized and competently met. The organization trains more than 2400 people annually, organizes the largest LGBT youth conference in the country with more than 2000 attendees and manages the state’s only LGBT mentoring program. True Colors has been spotlighted by both national and local media for their expertise in LGBTI youth issues, including most recently CNN.

Robin McHaelen began organizing the first “Children From the Shadows” (CFS) conference – Children From the Shadows:  Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Youth At Risk.  The University of Connecticut, School of Social Work approved the idea of creating a conference about LGBT youth and the risks associated with sexual minority status.

True Colors stands for full equality for LGBT youth, adults and families.  We are actively supporting same sex marriage equity.  We are committed to the work of social justice as an anti-racist organization. And with youth in the lead, we expect to move into our next decade with a continued passion to ensure that LGBT people are welcomed, valued and affirmed as full and productive members of society. 

Mentoring Program:

The True Colors One-on-One mentoring program can best be summed up as “the LGBT Big Brothers/Big Sisters”.  One-on-One Mentors meet with youth individually as well as in group activities such as game night, movie night, hiking trips, beach days, etc.
