"At a recent child-parent matching event, we had 60
applicants attend. Out of the 60, there were 10 same sex couples and 12 individuals. So we know that at least 1/3 of the attendees were LGBT - and probably more. If we were not working with the LGBT community, that would be 1/3 fewer applicants that we would be able to consider for our children."
