Using the Member Directory, find other Rainbow Families members in your community; reach out (our system even allows messaging) and say hello! Arrange a coffee, play-date with the kids, attend a lecture, hang out at a neighborhood park, talk about your local schools, etc.
Take advantage of the Closed Facebook Group. This is Rainbow Families’ listserv and is the perfect way to ask questions, post milestones, vent, get recommendations.
Attending (post pandemic) a Rainbow Families event (camping weekend, Great Wolf Lodge, Valentines and Halloween Dances, our Annual Family Picnic, local picnics, etc.) is the best way to meet other families and establish a richer sense of community. Don’t forget the benefits for our children to be among other families like theirs – which is so affirming for them at all ages & stages.
Attend the Annual Family Conference. Since 2003 this has been a cornerstone of Rainbow Families. Either virtually or in person, our Conferences allow attendees to connect on matters of interest to them either through workshops or the many networking breaks.
Connect with LGBTQ+ affirming/competent services, health providers and more through our vetted Provider Directory
