LGBTQ+ Training for Families & Caregivers - Los Angeles LGBT Center

“[I wanted to participate in RISE because] I need people that are really supportive, you know, they look past my sexuality, they look at, you know who I am individually, and that's what I wanted. I wanted somebody who looks, you know, past, what my sexuality is, or you know, anything else with me. They just see who I really am.” 
–RISE youth participant quote

I came to the Center as a victim. Today I am a survivor.

Watch Alice's Story

RISE has trained hundreds English and monolingual-Spanish speaking parents and caregivers.

The Supportive Families, Safe Homes training for caregivers uses activities and discussion to build foundational knowledge around healthy child development and the experiences of LGBTQ+ children and youth. Participants develop deeper levels of empathy and increase skills in supporting any LGBTQ or gender non-conforming children or youth who may be placed with them.
