Hello, hello and welcome to the 2023 Detroit City FC Prideraiser campaign, organized by the independent supporters at the Northern Guard Supporters. We are proud to announce that once again, we will be putting our goals and our voices behind the Ruth Ellis Center!
Founded in 1999, the Ruth Ellis Center works with LGBTQ+ youth. Nationwide, LGBTQ+ youth have a 120% higher risk of homelessness than their peers. To address that, Ruth Ellis Center has four facilities in Detroit and Highland Park including drop-in centers, a health & wellness center providing integrated primary and behavioral healthcare services, and a permanent housing facility with integrated services that opened in 2022.
Ally, longtime friends of Ruth Ellis Center and our co-partner last season, have joined for a third year to help continue the amazing work we all have managed to do, and in conjunction with the club, are helping spread the word and provide additional resources to further Ruth Ellis Center's mission!
For 2023, we are pledging against all home goals scored by the senior DCFC men's and women's teams in the month of June. That's five matches and five opportunities to help support this critical work to support our LGBTQ+ neighbors.
We’re asking you to join us in pledging some cash $$/goal to support this critical LGBTQ+ resource in our community or if you're only passing through briefly, we are also accepting one-time-donations! Since 2017, the Detroit City faithful have contributed over $130,000 to Ruth Ellis Center and we're excited to take our Detroit City Prideraiser to another level with Ally along with us this summer.
