Care & Caution During Coronavirus: Why OFC is Temporarily Going Virtual

 

In an abundance of caution and care for our community, the board and leadership of OFC have decided to follow the lead of other Bay Area nonprofits, schools, and companies and temporarily suspend in-person programs, transitioning to virtual programming for the next two weeks wherever possible.

Give Back

Help Our Family grow stronger in 2020.

 

Over the past twenty years we've had the honor of supporting thousands of LGBTQI family members and their friends, from the Bay Area and beyond.  Strengthening these families is our mission and our joy. Your support helps us keep doing this work we love, better and stronger.

Take Action

 

Every Child Deserves a Family.  

 

Right now 10 states – home to 30,000 children awaiting adoption – sanction discrimination against foster youth and prospective adoptive parents on the basis of religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status. 

 

At any time that's wrong. During a crisis, that's unconscionable.

 

 The Every Child Deserves a Family Act, reintroduced on June 5th of last year, will put an end to that.
