We are dedicated to building a system where all foster homes and family supports are LGBTQAI+-affirming.
If you are LGBTQAI+-affirming and thinking about fostering or adopting, you can make the difference in the life of an LGBTQAI+ young person.
Your role as a caregiver has a major impact on your child’s well-being and ability to become a healthy, happy, and independent adult. Thanks to research conducted by the Family Acceptance Project, we know that families who openly accept and support their child’s LGBTQAI+ identity significantly reduce the risk of physical and mental health concerns, which improves their child’s well-being and opportunities to succeed.
For resources (groups, therapy etc.) to help you support your LGBTQAI+ child, visit the Resources page. If you have questions or want more info. Contact the ACS LGBTQAI+ unit of the Office of Equity Strategies: firstname.lastname@example.org.
