is an online village designed to provide young people with the resources they need to thrive in this world, make a difference, and gain tools to lead healthy, productive, hate-free lives. It provides a wealth of materials including regular blogs from a dedicated group of young people making a difference in their own communities. Matthew’s Place is a program of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, which was founded by Dennis and Judy Shepard in memory of their 21-year old son, Matthew, who was murdered in an anti-gay hate crime in Wyoming in October 1998.

Matthew’s Place features interviews with individuals in the LGBT and allied community and an in-depth list of shelters, outreach centers, and empowerment programs that are welcoming of youth regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
