Yay! We've got our East Bay QTPOC Parents Support Group up and running at Oakstop 14, Wednesdays, February through March.  

 

This group will be facilitated by community members with degrees in counseling and we'll offer an English- and a Spanish-speaking group. Estamos haciendo este grupo en Inglés y Español. Llámenos en cualquier momento con preguntas al (415) 981-1960, o escríbenos a cheryl@ourfamily.org.

Folks raising little kids and who identify as queer or trans, and as people of color: come, relax, and build community with kindred spirits in a beautiful downtown Oakland space.

 

Donations are always appreciated but no one is ever turned away for lack of funds; dinner and childcare offered FREE with RSVP 48 hours in advance.

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. Ours are families large and small, having come together in many different ways. We live in every zip code; we are people of all races, ethnicities, genders, abilities, and ages.  

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.  

  

Over 120,000 at-risk foster youth nationwide await a permanent family. One in five identifies as LGBTQ, and they fare markedly worse than their non-LGBTQ peers.  

 

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, will put an end to that.
