Review for Our Family Coalition, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I found Our Family Coalition shortly after giving birth to our first child. We were overwhelmed in a sea of resources for new parents who were straight; we felt isolated and frankly, a bit lonely and scared. How did families like ours navigate bringing a new baby into the world? We needed both community and tools to hold us up through the transition into parenthood—into queer parenthood. Our Family Coalition offered just that. From parenting support groups to adoption workshops to friendly gatherings of families that looked like ours, we are so grateful to have been welcomed with open arms. We're a stronger family because of Our Family Coalition. I am so excited to grow and learn with Our Family Coalition as our kid gets older and our needs change as a family. I feel like this non-profit is more than an organization, it's an extension of our community, it's a refuge for queer families. It’s a robust ecosystem of people, offerings, events, energies and spaces. And it's a place to feel accepted, supported and uplifted.

Love and gratitude,
