Proud Family Support

Proud Family Support

This group is sponsored by the FirstEnergy Foundation.

This group is for parents, guardians, and/or family members of LGBTQIA+ children and tweens (ages 2-13 years old) as well as their youths. Parents will have the opportunity to discuss personal experiences and challenges related to being a parent, guardian, or supporting family member of an LGBTQIA+ child or tween and receive expert and educative information specific to how to best support your child. Youths will have the opportunity to play and chat with other children like themselves. This group provides a safe and non-judgmental space for family members who may have similar experiences. You are not required to speak or share any information you are not comfortable with. What is said in group stays in group, and each group member will sign a privacy agreement.

This group will begin meeting in 2024. If you identify with this group and are interested in joining, you can sign up for additional information and notifications now.
