Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund is supporting a new building construction in central Harlem that broke ground at the beginning of this year.

The shelter, called “True Colors Residence” (TCR), will consist of modern studio apartments and community space for thirty 18-24-year-old LGBTs of New York City’s homeless population.

“Our primary goal is to provide a physically and emotionally safe and supportive environment,” said Lauper, “that will empower our young residents to be the self-loving, happy, and successful individuals they were meant to be.”

According to her Give a Damn campaign blog, there are roughly 3-8,000 homeless LGBT youth living in New York City.
