The Midwest's first LGBT homeless youth shelter, El Rescate, is slated to open March 3 in Chicago, announced the Humboldt- Park-based nonprofit Vida/SIDA. "El Rescate will provide housing and services that address the unique needs of these young people," the organization said. The shelter will house eight to 10 people ages 18-24 and offer employment and education resources, skills training, and case management. Plans for the shelter had been in the works for more than three years but were hampered by fundraising and red tape. El Rescate is located at 2703 W. Division St.
