A group home for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender,
and Questioning (GLBTQ) Youth
Waltham House is a group home program designed to provide a safe and supportive living environment for up to 12 gay,lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) youth ages 14-18. The program also serves youth who may be questioning (Q) their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Many young people have previously experienced difficulty (at home or in placement) due to their gender expression or sexuality identities. Waltham House offers residents a safe environment to live while they prepare for family reunification, independent living and future self-sufficiency.
Waltham House is located in Waltham, Massachusetts. The program offers 24-hour staffing, and is housed in a large, comfortable, federal-style home with an expansive tree-lined backyard in a Boston-suburban neighborhood. The program serves GLBTQ youth who are in need of a safe and nurturing environment in order to reintegrate back into a community and/or family setting.
The Boston Herald’s video on The Waltham House has won national recognition with a Bronze Telly Award.
