Executive Director Carrie Jacobs co-founded The Attic as a support group for LGBTQ youth in 1993. The group met in the “attic” of Voyage House, a Philadelphia-based social service organization. Over the last 25 years, over 20,000 youth and young adults have walked through the doors of The Attic. There, they’ve found community and chosen family. With a quarter of a century to celebrate, The Attic has become one of the largest, nationally recognized, multi-service LGBTQ youth organizations in the United States.
