Free workshops for parents and caregivers of LGBTQ* youth at Delisle Youth Services

Caring for our kids, Caring for ourselves  

Raising an LGBTQ* child can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming. Many of us struggle with hard questions; Will our children be ok? Will they get bullied? Will our communities accept us? How can we keep our families strong? Are we saying and doing the right things to support our children and families? 
This FREE series of 5 workshops will provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space for parents and caregivers to explore the challenges and to celebrate the great things too! We will have a chance to share our experiences and learn from each other about how we care for ourselves and how we care for our kids. 


These workshops are ongoing. The next session will begin on November 6th. For more information call or email Maria Papadimitriou. Would you like us to offer the workshops in your community free of charge?.... Get in touch!
