Building A Better Support Group – One Size Does Not Fit All
Presented by Corinne Goodwin
Have you ever wanted more from your local support group? Would you like to start one in your area? Whether it is information, social activities, activism or access to resources, nowadays, many trans people are looking for more than a monthly meeting when they join a transgender support group. Like many support groups, Lehigh Valley Renaissance has seen rapid growth over the past few years – increasing its reach by over 16 times – and that has created new challenges and opportunities. In this interactive seminar, participants will learn how LV Renaissance undertook its effort to expand its services to include trans women, trans men, queer folk, trans youth, parents of trans children and the Cis community. We will also share and discuss the challenges support groups face for the future, best practices and opportunities. This is a perfect opportunity for people to share their vision for what they are looking for in terms of support activities – Why not join us!
