Found Families exists to integrate people in the LGBTQ+ community based on age, religion, socioeconomic status, race – everything you can think of. We want people to be able to be their whole selves while learning with and from each other, offering support through everyday life.
Groups of four to five people are formed, called families, that are encouraged to meet once a week altogether. But the idea of having a small family group is to have people to go to that understand your identity/identities and how that impacts your life. Going to movies once a month, having a group text, just something to keep everyone connected encompasses the idea of a family.
Once a month, there is a family reunion, where all of the small families get together to hang out, eat, and discuss an educational topic. We are having our next family reunions on Saturday, March 31, 2018 and Saturday, April 28 from 1-3:00pm in the LGBT Center on CWRU’s campus. The topic of the gathering is LGBT history and activism.
