LGBTQ Foster Youth and You (AM and PM sessions)

Q Center, 4115 N Mississippi
4115 N Mississippi Avenue
Portland, OR 97217, US (map)



Have you ever considered becoming a foster parent or geting involved in the Oregon Foster Care System? Come listen to foster youth, foster parents and system partners to discuss becoming a foster parent or a volunteer and learn about the specific need for LGBTQ-affirming families.

There are 2 identical sessions, 9am-11:30 and 12:30pm-3pm, with a social opportunity for everyone from 11:30am-12:30pm. Coffee and light snacks will be served during the event and a light lunch will be provided. We encourage you to attend the lunch hour to get the chance to talk one-on-one with DHS workers and other community partners.

RSPVs are requested but not required to attend. Please share widely and register if possible so we are able to plan accordingly for food.

Please email deidra.l.gibson-cairns@multco.us with any questions or requests for special accommodations.

A special thank you to our main sponsor, The Portland Children's Levy for their generous support!
