PHILADELPHIA - A new shelter that prioritizes transgender women of color is opening in North Philadelphia at the beginning of October.The Ark of Safety LGBTQ+ Safe Haven is an 8-bed emergency shelter that will also support four permanent beds for a rapid rehousing program.

The shelter, which is set to open on October 3, was founded by a trans woman who said she was inspired to open a safe haven like this because it would have helped her decades ago.

Tatyana Woodard, founder and Executive Director of Ark of Safety LGBTQ+ Safe Haven, left home when she was just 14 years old.

After years of experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity, Woodard decided she wanted to create a housing program that gives LGBTQ people not just a place to rest their head at night, but also opportunities to access resources designed specifically for queer and trans people.For the last ten years, Woodard has been advocating for the LGBTQ community, often trying to provide people with resources and services, including housing. "We are prioritizing trans-women, and that’s because we are [experiencing] a higher alarming rate of violence," said Woodard. "We want to show the same love that God has displayed to all of us to a marginalized community that’s often thrown away, ostracized, and not treated welly."MORE HEADLINES Police: 14-year-old killed in quadruple shooting that followed football scrimmage at Roxborough High SchoolVideo: Delaware jewelry store owner brutally beaten by armed robbery suspectPolice: 2 teens arrested, 2 others wanted after rideshare driver is carjacked, beaten in MantuaIn January, police investigated a brutal attack against a transgender woman near Rosehill and East Westmoreland streets.
