Resources In the United States and Canada

Across the United States and Canada, numerous organizations and initiatives provide support, advocacy, and resources tailored to the needs of the LGBTQAI+ community. These national resources offer a range of services, from crisis intervention and counseling to legal assistance and community-building opportunities.

For LGBTQAI+ individuals, accessing affirming and culturally competent support can be crucial in navigating challenges related to identity, discrimination, and mental health. Our national resources play a vital role in connecting individuals with the information, services, and networks they need to thrive.

By raising awareness of these national organizations and initiatives, we aim to empower LGBTQAI+ individuals and allies to access the support and resources they need to lead fulfilling and authentic lives. Whether you’re in need of assistance or looking to get involved in advocacy efforts, these national resources are valuable assets in promoting equality, acceptance, and affirmation for all members of the LGBTQAI+ community.

The links below provide information to LGBTQAI+ individuals, families, and others to find trained counselors, peer support, toolkits, fact sheets, and additional resources and information for individual support or about issues within the larger LGBTQAI+ community, including violence against the LGBTQAI+ community.
