Families at The Center is an inclusive family program at the San Diego LGBT Community Center. Our program is designed to provide resources, education, support and opportunities for community building for LGBTQIA+ families and those considering parenthood. At the Center, we believe family is whomever you define as family -related and by choice. We welcome anyone you feel has cared about, supported, mentored or nurtured your development. We know that families thrive and grow through the inclusion of many different members and all are welcome to take part in our program.

Family services include:

  • Information and referrals regarding schools, parenting, housing and voting
  • Support groups and peer support
  • Educational and skill-building opportunities
  • Social and recreational opportunities
