Our Family Coalition:

Our Family Coalition promotes the equality and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer families with children. We foster community leadership in advocacy efforts that promote social justice.


OFC offers family support programs that serve LGBTQ parents/caregivers and their children, providing educational workshops, parent peer support groups, and community-building events and activities; helps foster institutional change focused on building cultural competency to work with LGBTQ families in elementary schools, early childhood settings, and health and social service settings; and engages in policy and advocacy work to advance the equality of LGBTQ families. These three areas of work inform and build on one another. Throughout our programs, we have focused resources on deepening our work with families and the communities in which they live.
