Bea Arthur Leaves $300,000 in Will to Shelter for Homeless LGBT Youth

Late Golden Girls star Bea Arthur allotted $300,000 in her will to the Ali Forney Center, which supports LGBT youth in New York City, the New York Daily News reports. The organization provides services to more than 1,000 adolescents every year, offering food, clothing, medical and mental health therapy, vocational and educational assistance plus HIV testing, treatment and prevention services.

According to the article, Ali Forney will use the money to buy a housing unit for 12 young people, which will be named after the television icon.

“We work with hundreds of young people who are rejected by their families because of who they are,” said executive director Carl Siciliano. “We are overwhelmed with gratitude that Bea saw that LGBT youth deserve as much love and support as any other young person.”
