Youth & Families
For parents new to the LGBTQ+ community, learning how to best support your child or teen while they figure out who they are can be incredibly challenging. For parents who identify as LGBTQ+, finding community and other families like yours can also be difficult. We are here to help. Find internal groups and external resources below. For more questions or information, email [email protected].

Social Support Groups
We Are Family
We Are Family is a quarterly group that offers a chance for LGBTQ+ families with children ages 12 and under to connect with other such families. All families have a unique blend of members that don’t always look the same as others. The purpose of this group is for youth 12 and under and their immediate family to have a welcoming space to make lasting connections with other families that may or may not resemble their own. If you have more questions about who is welcome to attend, send us an email!
Each meeting will have snacks, refreshments, and a fun activity to engage in.
