Family and Youth Support Groups

We understand the value of connecting with families and youth who share your experience, have good advice or have stories that help you find your way. TransActive support groups offer a safe space to share your hopes (and fears), be your true self, ask questions, and to take the steps towards a more fulfilling, connected life.
