Maison de Jon Gathercole

Bright Star Foundation’s LGBTQIA+ Inclusive, Affordable Housing


Claude Raffin and The Estate of Jon Gathercole donated three newly renovated apartment buildings in Las Vegas.


The BSF directors updated the BSF mission to remove the age restriction on assistance and instead focus on vulnerable populations within the LGBTQIA+ community, namely youth, seniors, people with disabilities, people of color, trans-persons and others at risk.


This is a huge first step! However, with only seventeen units, we have a long way to go! Help us to build, and to support the important work we are doing to house vulnerable LGBTQIA+ people, and to support homeless youth. We still have upcoming costs for final renovation work, and need help raising money to assist people into housing, to do outreach, and to repatriate homeless LGBTQIA+ youth.
