The Estate of late actress Bea Arthur has bestowed a $300,000 gift to the Ali Forney Center, the country's largest organization for homeless LGBT youth.
The Ali Forney Center plans to use the money for a new 12-person youth residence which will be named after Bea.
Executive Director Carl Siciliano praises Bea's generosity:
"We work with hundreds of young people who are rejected by their families because of who they are. We are overwhelmed with gratitude that Bea saw that LGBT youth deserve as much love and support as any other young person, and that she placed so much value in the work we do to protect them, and to help them rebuild their lives."
Thank you for being a friend, Bea! We miss you!
