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.

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. 

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.
