A dozen OFC Virtual Programs for March – & links to register

by Cheryl Lala, M.S., Director of Family Programs

As many of you have read, we had to cancel or reschedule our in-person community events and support groups due to COVID-19-related precautions, acting on social distancing recommendations from the CDC.

In this time of uncertainty, we know one thing: we need more connection instead of less. That’s why our Programs team has been working around the clock to offer enhanced opportunities for us to share space – albeit virtually.

Our hope is that we can continue to talk about the things that unite us: our children, our hope for children, and family-building specific to the LGBTQ+ community.

Join us remotely. Call or video conference in, knowing the line is secure and HIPAA-compliant (more here).

In order to ensure security we’re asking all participants to pre-register for our virtual programs. Once registered, our programs team will reach out to you directly with the phone number and link to the video line on the day of the event.

Please choose any link below to learn more and register for the following virtual offerings this month:

In community and best wishes,
Cheryl & The Programs Team
