GIFT consults with local organizations in a variety of capacities. It provides speakers and resources for churches, college classes, and other venues.  It has also help kick-start Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) Groups in local high schools. Support Groups LGBT+ Adult Support Group and our Loved-Ones of LGBT+ Support Group allows us to come together in community and support each other on their journeys. Many people feel unheard and unsupported at the churches, jobs, schools, and families. GIFT aims to let these individuals know that they are loved and heard.
