Grief & Loss in Family Building Support Group

Rainbow Families continues our Support Group for those in the LGBTQ+ community who have experienced grief and loss as part of their family building journey.  The aim of the group is to create a safe and comfortable space to share stories, resources and healing. These are peer-based groups and not to be considered a replacement for therapy or counseling.
