For Parents

Our Thrive Drop-in Center for parents and caregivers who are actively parenting LGBTQ+ teens provides an informal and confidential space for families and supportive adult allies to share their stories, find commonalities, and get their questions answered.

Thrive meets the first and third Wednesdays of every month from 6:30-8:30p at the DuPage Unitarian Universalist Church in Naperville (1828 Old Naperville Road).  This group meets concurrently with our Transcend Drop-In.  Parents of trans youth have found this community particularly helpful.

What to expect:

  • connection to resources
  • occasional guest speakers
  • building community with fellow parents
