Adoption Support Group
The Adoption Support Group is a monthly support group for LGBTQ+ prospective parents currently in the process of pursuing adoption, including ‘waiting’ families, facilitated by an experienced host.
Conception Support Group
The Conception Support Group is a monthly support group for the LGBTQ+ community (individuals and partnered) trying to get pregnant using donor sperm. We offer a safe and comfortable environment to share our stories and resources on the journey to pregnancy. The group is facilitated by a licensed therapist.
DSRF: Divorced & Separated Rainbow Families – Support Group
The DSRF Support Group is a monthly, virtual, peer-focused support group for the LGBTQ+ community who are divorced or separated. We offer a safe and comfortable environment to share our stories; available for all gender expressions, and adults with or without children.
Grief & Loss Support Group
Grief and loss as it relates to family building is often not discussed, or worse, dismissed. This is particularly true for the LGBTQ+ community. This group, facilitated by an expert in the field, helps discover paths to healing and coping and more. Sessions are held monthly in 3-month cycles. Like all Rainbow Families support groups, this is a safe and welcoming space.
Pregnancy/New Parent Support Group
The Pregnancy Support Group is a monthly support group, for those in the LGBTQ+ community currently pregnant or who recently gave birth (from conception up through approximately 3 months postpartum). We offer a safe and comfortable environment to share our stories and resources during the journey of pregnancy and the first few months of parenthood.
