Resources For Families


Religious:

HARBOR

Harbor is an online support program for Christian parents of LGBT kids. It's designed to surround parents with the knowledge, resources, and support they need to draw them closer to their children.

EMBRACING THE JOURNEY

Compelled by our broken hearts, seeing families pulled apart, we are dedicated to help reconcile LGBTQ individuals and their families while helping them move closer to Jesus where healing and personal growth occurs.

FREEDHEARTS

We provide stellar live, printed and filmed content - for parents, LGBTQ, and those in the church. From intimate retreat gatherings, conferences, parent support groups, one-day workshops and speaking events; to articles, books and study guides; to video messages and conference-length courses for individuals and groups: each conveys a message of lavish love and inclusion.

CANYON WALKER CONNECTIONS

The mission of Canyonwalker Connections, founded in 2011 by Executive Director Kathy Baldock, is to repair the division existing between social and Christian conservatives and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community through education, training, encouragement, and dialogue in both secular and religious environments.

PARENT CONNECT

Parent Connect is a Care Ministry of  North Point Church in Alpharetta GA. The goal of Parent Connect is to provide a safe environment for parents of LGBT children to experience community and personal growth. In Parent Connect, you will  1) Experience a safe environment in which to connect with other parents of LGBT children. 2) Explore God’s purposes for you as the parent of an LGBT individual. 3) Learn how to love your LGBT son or daughter well while not sacrificing your faith. Parent Connect groups meet monthly in homes and are led by group facilitators.

LOVE WELL

Love Well is faith-based support for parents and loved ones of LGBTQ individuals based in Orland Park IL , where they can bring their pain and confusion and can process their common experiences together. In this safe and  confidential environment, parents begin to recognize that they are not alone, and that God is enough for them...even for this journey. As we look to the example of Jesus, He empowers us to refocus our hearts, and grow in loving our children well, even if we may disagree with their choices.

FORTUNATE FAMILIES

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Catholics and their allies are present in all parts of our Church and should be valued and celebrated as members of the colorful family of God. With our partners in the Equally Blessed Coalition, we seek to educate and inspire Catholics to take action which promotes the dignity of LGBT people, their families and friends. We support efforts to create welcoming and healing spaces, amplify the pro-LGBT Catholic voice, advocate for LGBT church workers, parishioners and allies and much more.
