Data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that LGBTQIA+ people are struggling with the pandemic. This data shows:

  • One in five LGBT people said they, or someone in their household, had lost employment in the past four weeks.
  • LGBT people were nearly twice as likely (13%) to report that they sometimes or often did not have enough to eat in the past seven days compared to non-LGBT people (7%). LGBT households with children experienced even higher rates of food insecurity in the past seven days (16%).
  • One in ten (11%) of LGBT homeowners said they were behind on their mortgage, and nearly one in five (18%) of LGBT renters were behind on rent.

The good news is there are resources to help you and people you know who are struggling with getting food on the table, paying rent, and employment. Below are some resources across Nebraska.
