Found Families is participant-led community that aims to improve the wellbeing of LGBTQA+ people in the greater CWRU community. We foster a sense of belonging by connecting participants to one another and local resources. Found Families is sponsored by the LGBT Center and University Health and Counseling Services.

We want people to be able to be their whole selves while learning with and from each other, offering support through everyday life. For more information or to join the email list, contact or
