Co-founded by a gay asylum seeker and trans American at the University of Pennsylvania, InReach (formerly AsylumConnect) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing the world's first tech platform matching LGBTQ+ people with safe, verified resources. Our mission is to ensure safe help is InReach for all members of the LGBTQ+ community.
InReach’s free technology instantly matches LGBTQ+ people fleeing persecution and other LGBTQ+ people in need with independently verified, affirming medical and mental health care, immigration and other legal help, safe housing, education and employment opportunities, translation services, community support, and more critical support services.
InReach is for the entire diverse LGBTQ+ community – including asylum seekers and refugees, undocumented and other immigrants, young people experiencing homelessness, those facing family or community rejection due to their identity, and other transgender and non-binary people in need of safe resources.
The free InReach App is available on web, mobile web, and native iOS and Android. The App is available in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories, Canada, and Mexico. The free InReach App has topped over 250,000 user sessions since launching in 2016.
Our work at InReach has been recognized by Forbes 30 Under 30, the Roddenberry Foundation’s Roddenberry Fellowship, Borealis Philanthropy’s Fund for Trans Generations, the Funding Queerly Giving Circle at the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, the Clinton Foundation's CGI U Alumni Honor Roll, the Passion Fund by Linktree x Square, the World Justice Challenge in The Hague, and more.
With InReach at scale, every LGBTQ+ person in need will know where it is safe to go for help.
