PFLAG Support Group

Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays Support Group meetings are held here on the 2nd Thursday of every month.  This group provides support and education for not only the LGBT+ family, but also anyone with a desire for deeper understanding of all those with in our community.  If you know anyone that may benefit from this support group or want to attend for yourself, please know that you are welcome. Support information talked about at the meetings is strictly confidential.

Support groups provide a forum to share feelings, concerns, and information and are a way of supporting and encouraging each other.

Both these meetings are open to everyone. No registration is required, and there is no cost to attend. We hope everyone interested will feel welcome to attend.
