Support Groups

If you’re a parent of a transgender

individual, or identify as transgender*

and are between the ages of 9-24,

we have support groups for you!

Most support groups continue to meet on Zoom. Groups are free, but registration is required. All group start times are based in Eastern Time.

 

 

Please note: October is Trans Empowerment Month! Support groups will take a hiatus in October so that you can join us for this special event!
Groups will resume in November.

 

 

 

Meet our support group facilitators!
