Remembering Former HMI Board Member David Beitzel
The Board of Directors of the Hetrick-Martin Institute notes with great sadness the death of former HMI Board member David Beitzel. We extend our sincerest condolences to Darren Walker, David’s beloved husband, and the Beitzel family on his untimely loss. David was an extraordinary man who unstintingly shared his vision, wisdom, and support to address the needs of LGBTQ youth and improve their lives. He was committed to ensuring that our young people have equal access to the means and opportunities for rich and bright futures. During his Board tenure and after, David was a cherished member of our family–always ready to lend a hand in any way he could, and he will be profoundly missed.

At the Hetrick-Martin Institute we believe all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.
Hetrick-Martin creates this environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth between the ages of 13 and 24 and their families.
Through a comprehensive package of direct services and referrals, Hetrick-Martin seeks to foster healthy youth development. Hetrick-Martin’s staff promotes excellence in the delivery of youth services and uses its expertise to create innovative programs that other organizations may use as models.
