SCO LGBTQ+ Peer Support Group
Any SCO youth 13+ who identifies as LGBTQAI+
The LGBTQ+ Support Group is a peer youth group for SCO’s youth who identify under the LGBTQAI+ umbrella. Meetings include community-related discussions where the youth are encouraged to share their experiences with the rest of the group. They are also encouraged to bring along people who are a part of their support system – whether they identify as a part of the community or not. Snacks and refreshments are provided.

Every third Friday of the month, from 4:30PM to 6PM. The next meeting is November 19th.
Being in foster care is difficult enough. “Coming out” while is care is twice as hard and can leave youth feeling alienated and afraid. SCO’s Forward Journey and Lifeset Departments wanted to create a safe space where SCO youth who identify as LGBTQAI+ can meet peers and support one another.
