Peer Support Group Meetings
Offering a safe and welcoming space for parents, friends, LGBTQ+ individuals and allies. Ages 18+.
Our Peer Support groups provide an opportunity to learn, ask questions, and connect with others — either in person or virtually. These groups meet monthly and are facilitated by volunteers, many of whom are parents themselves. Charlotte meetings may also include educational programming. Registration is required; the links below are updated at the beginning of each month.
Charlotte in person meetings are generally the second Monday evening of the month; virtual meetings are generally the third Tuesday evening of the month; North Meck in person meetings are generally the fourth Thursday evening of every odd month. Union County in person meetings are on odd month. Registration is required; the links below are updated at the beginning of each month.
