Indiana's First LGBTQ Youth Shelter / Tough Conversations

On today's show we learn about a new shelter called Trinity Haven for LGBTQ youth and young adults. It's the first of its kind in Indiana. We talk with leaders at Trinity Haven and the Indiana Youth Group about why shelters and facilities like this are needed.

We also talk about how to navigate difficult conversations, from negotiating salary to setting boundaries.
