Not only is Betty Haynes-Jacobs, LSW an outstanding student, but a powerful community leader, volunteer, and advocate. During her associate degree program, Betty completed an internship at the LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland and realized that lives were being lost due to the lack of LGBTQ+ specific support in her community. In response to this need Betty founded LGBTQ+ Allies Lake County, the first and only LGBTQ+ nonprofit serving at-risk children, adults, and their families in Lake County. Since its founding, Betty has led many advocacy & outreach efforts such as pursuing a non-discrimination ordnance for Lake County, promoting the Ohio Fairness Act, serving as the Great Lakes regional director of PFLAG, and working with a local youth behavioral health agency to develop residential treatment programming focused on LGBTQ+ youth in the child welfare system. Betty’s passion for social work, and especially serving the LGBTQ+ population, is a perfect example of the impact students can make even before they finish their degrees.
Join us in celebrating Betty Haynes-Jacobs and our other winners at the Social Work Celebration Gala on June 18th in Columbus, OH. Mark your calendar!

Hopefully equitable access to health care is in the cards for LGBTQ+ people in 2022! 🏳️🌈⚕⚧
"The proposed protections — which would reinstate sexual orientation and gender identity as protected antidiscrimination categories — come amid the Biden administration’s pledge to restore protections for LGBTQ+ Americans that were revoked under former President Donald Trump. - This matters because of another systemic inequity: The deep economic disparities experienced by LGBTQ+ Americans — especially transgender people, who make less than cisgender people in the United States — mean they are less likely to have health insurance through an employer plan."
White House seeks more LGBTQ+ protections in ACA plans The administration wants to restore Obama-era safeguards and protect gender-affirming care.

"Nassib was not the only player to support LGBTQ causes this year. Cleveland Browns fullback and LGBTQ ally Johnny Stanton, whose uncle is gay, created rainbow cleats in support of Athlete Ally, which promotes LGBTQ inclusion in sports.
“No one should feel unwelcome on the field or the court. If just one person being an ally can help them feel more comfortable, then I’m happy to be that person,” Stanton said in a statement the NFL shared on Twitter last week."
Allies are such an important part of Inclusion! 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧
