    In an effort to maintain the privacy of our children and protect our families,
    The LOFT has developed an intake process for new families joining this group.

    This form is required in order for families to attend the group. Click here to access it.

    The location of The Rainbow Clubhouse will be shared with families who complete the intake.



    Group Format

    The Rainbow Clubhouse is a safe-space support group for families of gender-expansive children, up to age 12, and will feature two side-by-side groups.

    • Playgroup for youth up to age 12:
      • The Playgroup is a safe social space for children to play, interact with peers and be themselves. Discussions within the playgroup are not solely focused on topics such as gender, feelings or bullying. Instead, playgroup participants are given the safe environment to develop friendships through common playtime activities.
      • The Playgroup is overseen by a professional with 20+ years of childcare experience, and an additional, experienced adult.
    • Parent/Guardian group:
      • The Parent/Guardian group features a unique opportunity for families to gain support and connection to others with similar experiences. Some topics that may be discussed in this group include: talking to extended family, navigating school systems, and finding affirming professionals/resources.
      • The Parent/Guardian group is facilitated by a LOFT staff member with experience working with families of trans youth. Meetings may also feature guest speakers and reading lists of gender-affirming books for adults & youth.


    Definitions

    Gender-Expansive can be defined as: An adjective used to describe people that identify or express themselves in ways that broaden the culturally defined behavior or expression associated with one gender. -According to Welcoming Schools: A program of the Human Rights Campaign


    The meeting space is a nut-free facility.

    Participation in this group is free, donations are welcome.
