BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP

Rainbow Families is a nonprofit service organization, here to support and educate LGBTQ+ families, prospective parents, and allies.
If membership (or program) dues ever present a roadblock to participation, please send an email in confidence to our Executive Director.
Rainbow Families does not want economics to be a factor in connecting with your community and/or receiving benefit or services of membership.

Member Directory

Available only to members, our Member Directory is a great way to connect with families whom you have met at events, but may have not exchanged contact information.   Members have control of their privacy settings and whether to have their information seen by other members.

To access the directory, you must log in to your account, where you will find it on the Member Dashboard

Member Only Resource Directory

Members have access to our ever-growing list of LGBTQ+ friendly service providers and practitioners

Rainbow Families provides this list to connect our community members with access to community resources.  Rainbow Families has a desire to support queer (and queer-supportive) communities, businesses and service providers

Often, queer individuals seek out care from other queer individuals who may better understand their lived experiences; this directory allows providers to identify themselves as part of the LGBTQ+ community

Rainbow Families never sells space on our directory; this is not an ‘advertisement forum’ like many other nonprofits offer.  This is a sincere effort to share qualified LGBTQ+ competent resources

Member Only Facebook Listserv

This is Rainbow Families’ member listserv.   Here, members share community, connection, and information, which is fundamental to fulfilling our mission at Rainbow Families.  Members can ask questions, seek advice, get support, and share parenting stories or milestones

Birthday Cards for Member’s Children

When members include their children’s names and birthdates in their profile, Rainbow Families celebrates and honors them with a birthday card each year
