Need Support?

When PFLAG founder Jeanne Manford marched with her gay son, Morty, in New York City’s Christopher Street Liberation Day March in 1972--and held the first peer support meeting less than a year later--she could scarcely have imagined how much larger the organization would become, the number of lives PFLAG would touch, or the many ways--or to the many people across the country and around the world--support would be offered.

For over four decades, PFLAG has provided support to families and allies who are in need, through peer-to-peer meetings, online outreach, and telephone hotlines. PFLAG National also offers a huge variety of resources and programs that provide support for those in need. 

For peer-to-peer support services in your community, contact one of the more than 400 PFLAG chapters across the United States today. If there is not a chapter in your community or you are just looking for information and resources, PFLAG National is your first step in finding the support you need.
