Adopt-A-Diva & Queermas

Every holiday season, the one•n•ten youth and staff celebrate Queermas! one•n•ten youth range in age from 11-24, and nearly half of the youth in our programs are homeless, or otherwise disenfranchised, and they all are in need of a great holiday through community supporters like you.  Our Youth Center is open each year on Christmas Day, where the youth receive personalized gifts under the tree that are made possible by the community. In an effort to include the community at large in our gift-collection efforts, small Adopt-A-Diva Christmas trees will be displayed at various bars, restaurants, churches, and coffee shops around the Valley. Patrons may select a tag off the tree, which lists a youth’s name and the items they have put on their “Holiday Wish List” that the one•n•ten staff collects. Individuals wishing to Adopt-A-Diva can visit one of the tree locations and select a wish tag or go online and purchase gifts through Amazon.
