L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center
June 17, 2009

My family has been participating in the Family Day in th Park, Rainbow Family Camp, Gay Pride Parade march with Family Services and Neighborhood Family Days for the past six years. Before that, my partner and I attended the Maybe Baby meetings to learn about how we could create our family. I hadn't realized what an integral part of our lives this organization has been! I value the connection that this organization has helped us to maintain to the gay & lesbian community. Our kids have made relationships with the dedicated staff who have been there for years. Our family feels valued by these people with a level of understanding that is hard to come by in the mainly heterosexual community in which we live. Not only do they provide a community in which we belong, but they motivate us to get involved, and stay involved. We are truly lucky to have the Family Services Program as a part of our family! Thank you!
