Our Next PFLAG Greater Providence Regular Meeting Will Be On October 5, 2016
On Wednesday, October 5, 2016, PFLAG of Greater Providence will have its monthly meeting from 6:45 to 8:45 pm at the MET School in Providence. This will be a brief general support meeting followed by a speaker at 8:00 p.m. We are pleased to announce our guest speaker for this meeting will be Janet Grapentine. Janet is a former Pediatric Nurse and Social Worker who transitioned to Elder Care working for Child and Family Services of Newport. It was while attending a workshop on Alzheimer's Disease that she heard a comment made by the presenter about LGBT care groups in California but found nothing close in Rhode Island. Five years ago, in partnership with a retired college professor, she began the LGBT caregivers group based in Middletown, RI.
Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month. All our welcome! Our meetings are relaxed, safe, and non-judgmental; and all information shared remains confidential.
Although you do not have to be a member to attend our meetings, we welcome you to join as your membership does help support the work that we do in Rhode Island to support families and their gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender and non-binary family members. Most of our funds are used to print the publications we provide to those who attend meetings and to other organizations who request them. We also use the funds we collect to participate in Pride Fest and the Pride Parade, to produce marketing materials to let Rhode Islanders know we are there to support them. In addition, we help support other LGBTQ organizations within our community.
We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization that relies primarily on your support to operate. So we encourage you to renew your membership now or consider joining if you are not currently a member. You can find our membership brochure on our website at www.pflagprovidence.org and you can also join or donate online.
As always, we are very grateful for all the wondeful support our members and friends have given us that have allowed us to continue to provide our monthly support meetings and to increase our education and advocacy efforts.
Please note that we will be meeting at The MET School in the UNITY, Building, which is located at the other end of the campus from our previous location in the JUSTICE Building. If you are driving up Public Street from Eddy Street, it is the first campus entrance on the right after you cross Plain Street. The building is located toward the back with parking in the rear.
All are welcome. Refreshments and parking are available.
PFLAG is a unique organization offering support for families of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and gender-nonconforming/questioning people, and for the LGBTQ people seeking to come out into the embrace of their families. We help by telling the stories of our own journeys to understanding and acceptance of our children, and we take a personal interest in every family who attends.
