We have been spending time recognizing Transgender Sensitivity. Each Wednesday we conduct a support group for our LGBTQ youth. We also have postings around the facility that highlight acceptance of the LGBTQ community. We are hopeful to continue to promote acceptance and tolerance, as well as supportive efforts. 

This group has produced extremely positive outcomes! We had many youth that were struggling in silence, that have been able to share their struggles and received support through the group. These youth have all expressed that they are feeling better and no longer feel isolated since attending the group!
