Program for Parents and Caregivers of Trans, Non-Binary and Gender-Questioning Kids and Youth

We are excited to announce our Spring session OK2BME’s Families in TRANSition (FIT). Families in TRANSition is a program for parent and caregivers of trans, non-binary, and gender-questioning kids and youth.


FIT is open to all adults who play a primary caregiving role for a trans/non-binary/gender-questioning person aged 5-18. There is a separate group for the kids ages 5-12 that runs at the same time a in different room. If the young person doesn't want to attend or isn't able, the parents/caregivers can still attend the parent/caregiver group.  (Caregivers can include biological parents, foster parents, stepparents, legal guardians, and informal caregivers such as grandparents, godparents, and extended family so long as they are part of the young person’s everyday life).


A group for youth aged 13-17 will be offered in the fall. We’ll share more information as that date approaches.


The group will run Monday evenings from 5:30-7:30pm for 10 weeks from April 8 – June 17 (no group May 20).


Please visit our webpage for more info about the FIT program, including a link to our online intake form.
