Welcome to Rainbow Families
Rainbow Families educates, connects, and supports LGBTQ+ families and parents-to-be. Our first meetings date back to the late 1980s; we formalized our status as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization in 2008, and have experienced significant growth and increased participation by a diverse representation of LGBTQ families. We touch over 10,000 family members each month through our membership, communications channels, and our signature social and educational programs.
In 2019 Rainbow Families was named “One of the Best” nonprofit organizations by the Catalogue for Philanthropy.
