Your health and well being is the top priority for our PFLAG chapter. With that in mind, and based on the data and information we have received from PFLAG National, the CDC, the WHO and our Rhode Island Governor, we are suspending all in-person chapter meetings in both Providence (The Met School, Unity Building) and Newport (Channing Memorial Church, Parish Hall) until further notice.
Even though we are not meeting in person, PFLAG Greater Providence leaders are available to provide you support. Please reach out to us as follows:
PFLAG Greater Providence provides much-needed support to LGBTQ+ people and their families in Rhode Island and is surrounding communities in Massachusetts. Now, we're proud to continue providing you trusted support, meeting you where you are--wherever you are--via PFLAG Connects.
PFLAG Connects meetings, run by trusted PFLAG Greater Providence leaders, will give you the support you need during this most-challenging time.
