We rise by lifting others.

If you identify as LGBTQ+, or are a parent, friend or family member of someone who is, there are a wealth of resources, and opportunities to connect and learn.

Services and information focused on the health and well-being of our LGBTQ+ family are available nationally, in the Chicagoland area, and locally in Will, Kendall and DuPage Counties.

If you have a specific need that cannot be met by any of the organizations listed below, please contact us.
