PFLAG San Francisco, the San Francisco Chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, Inc., has been meeting consistently since 1976. Attendees include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning persons as well as parents, allies and friends.
The volunteer members inspire all the regular activities and special projects of the chapter and are central to chapter leadership. The chapter works cooperatively with the other chapters in the Bay Area and Northern California. We regularly participate in PFLAG national conventions and in other national activities.
We invite you to share your experience and concerns in a completely confidential and supportive environment. We encourage lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people, parents, family and friends to attend our meetings. Everyone is welcome.
Our speaker for May will be Ivan Alomar from At The Crossroads, a non-profit dedicated to helping homeless youth.
Their innovative model focuses on young people who do not access traditional services and are disconnected from any type of consistent support. They work with young people who others have given up on, who would not get help without At the Crossroads. They remove common barriers to service by bringing counselors onto the streets, and shaping their support services around the needs of each individual client. Their goal is to help clients build outstanding lives, not just lives of subsistence.
They accomplish their mission through a combination of nighttime street outreach and one-on-one counseling, and collaboration with other service providers. They walk the streets of the Mission and Downtown San Francisco at nighttime, bringing help to clients, rather than making them come to the organization.
