Encircle & ION Earth: Powering People
September 29th, 2022
No Sides, Only Love
No sides, only love. That’s the motto of Encircle, a non-profit organization that provides a safe space, affordable counseling services, and daily programs to LGBTQ+ youth in the community.
With six locations in Utah stretching from Ogden to St. George, Encircle works with families and applicable insurance plans to reduce the cost of therapy, allowing greater access to those in need.
“To have a community partner and an organization like ION come in, it shows them that they matter and that they’re worth investing in.”Callie Birdsall-Chambers, VP of Marketing at Encircle in reference to local LGBTQ+ teens, on ABC4 Good Things Utah
Resources, Activities, and Hope
Encircle provides training, guest speakers, and on-site events to coordinate with the public on topics related to the LGBTQ+ community. Encircle is involved with a number of fundraising events, including the LOVELOUD music festival, which generates donations for organizations that support LGBTQ+ youth, and the Out of Darkness Suicide Prevention Walk.
In a unique partnership with Encircle, ION Solar is installing solar panels on each of Encircle’s current home facilities- a move that is part of the ION Earth initiative to power people from every walk of life. This solar panel system aims to eliminate the burden of utility costs for Encircle’s facilities and also allow them to help pass those savings on to families and individuals in need through programs and services.
There are many ways that community members can get involved with Encircle’s outreach efforts, including volunteer work, grassroots fundraisers, and internships. Those interested in donating to support Encircle’s mission to provide care for LGBTQ+ youth can do so by contributing monthly to the non-profit organization, with amounts starting as low as $10.
Let your search for the best solar company end here, ION Solar is your top pick for a premium solar experience.
