PFLAG is a national organization established to support LGBTQ young people and adults, and their families and friends through its mission of Education, Support and Advocacy. Research shows that LGBT students who receive support from their families, schools and communities are able to survive the stress and challenges far better than students who don’t have that support.
PFLAG provides factual and helpful information and personal connections for families whose children or teens believe they may be among the minority in sexual orientation or gender identity. For more information, call Jeanne St.John at 541-265-7194.
