More about the
"All Children – All Families
training helped our agency to increase LGBT competence
among our staff and to increase opportunities for LGBT people to become adoptive parents to our youth in care. We are a stronger, more welcoming agency because of the training. LGBT individuals and couples express an increased feeling of safety and support from our staff and, best of all, more youth are becoming part of forever families!"
