Our Family Coalition prepared me for some of the difficult situations that have come up for my kids in middle-school: bullying, homophobic comments, racism, sexuality, etc. OFC's resources & workshops & events all contributed to our ability to have casual, open conversations about these topics at the dinner table. My kids and our family feel strong, confident and safe in the world today because of the work OFC does. Thank you!

Our Family Coalition (OFC) is an outstanding organization...working for support, education and joy for LGBT families. They also do extensive work in the public schools providing anti-bullyin workshops for teachers in many school districts; addressing bullying as an issue for ALL children, not just LGBT youth. They are diligent in their efforts to promote diverstiy and acceptance of all families, throughout society. Their efforts were recognized by the White House when invited to President Obama's LGBT meeting. For more information about OFC - www.ourfamily.org.

It is well run, well organized, utilizes a dynamic group of volunteers. Good for its members, and good for the larger community!
