Carrie Jacobs (Philadelphia) Founding Executive Director of the Attic Youth Center
Carrie is the founding Executive Director of the Attic Youth Center, Philadelphia's LGBTQ youth community center. Carrie has been instrumental in improving the lives of thousands of LGBTQ youth throughout the city. She helped create a safe space for queer youth in an 'attic' nearly 20 years ago and has since led the Attic Youth Center to become one of the most comprehensive LGBTQ youth centers in the nation. For those of us who have met Carrie, we know she is incredibly modest about her work. We must commend her for helping so many of us youth through her groundbreaking support with the Attic. While the journey to make it better for LGBTQ youth continues, we are ever thankful and proud that Carrie is at the helm at the Attic.

Carrie Jacobs, executive director of the Attic Youth Center, said she believes what her organization does is essential, but also points to a lack of funding and coordination across the whole sector as to why LGBTQ youth are neglected. She also noted that there are simply not enough services to go around.
"There's really not a lot of us," Jacobs said.

Carrie is the executive director of The Attic Youth Center, and my version of a celebrity crush. As a psychotherapist, I hear far too many stories about people who struggled all throughout their childhood and adolescence because they knew they were LGBTQ and had no support. Carrie and her organization works every day to make this story one that gets told less in our city. I'm so grateful for that.
