Operating hours Monday-Friday from 10am to 4pm. The Place is partnering with Inside Out Youth Services on a place where youth (15-24 years old), who are without consistent housing and shelter can come inside, get warm, grab a cup of soup, and connect with trusted adults and mental health professionals.

Our physical space is closed for programming, but youth can continue to access our programs online.
We just released our 2020 Annual Report. Check out the impact we achieved with the support of our community.
Inside Out empowers, educates, and advocates for LGBTQ+ of youth from the Pikes Peak Region in Southern Colorado. Inside Out does this by creating safe space, support systems and teaching life skills to all youth in our community and work to make our community safer and more accepting of gender and sexual orientation diversity.
Inside Out Youth Services (est. 1990) is the only non-profit organization in El Paso County that serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning youth. We provide a safe accepting space for young adults between 13-24 years of age. All of our groups and services are provided free of charge with the hope that any aid we provide will further the happiness and health of LGBTQ+ kids in the Colorado Springs area.
Our programs include support youth through discussion groups, drop-ins (temporarily online due to COVID-19), outings, leadership opportunities, counseling, as well as food and clothing support. Our goal is to ensure that each of the lives we touch goes on to live a healthy and long existence as their authentic happy selves.
Our adult workshops train parents and youth-serving adults how to advocate and support their youth through allyship and community resiliency. We also work with community partners, schools, and organizations to advocate for youth and teach them how to be inclusive, change-making leaders.
Every dollar you spend with us is put directly toward aiding and assisting the LGBTQ+ youth of Colorado Springs. Your thoughtful donation makes a big difference for the youth attending Inside Out.
