Fostering Pride -

Every child deserves to grow up in a safe and happy environment. Please join us for Fostering Pride.

Fostering Pride invites you to learn about the resources and services that Philadelphia offers to support and empower LGBTQ+ youth.

In addition, at Fostering Pride, we will explore the many ways being a resource parent for LGBTQ+ youth can change lives—theirs as well as yours! Resource parents will be on hand to share how the experience can be an extremely fulfilling and life-changing experience for you—and can mean the difference between a future of challenges and one paved with opportunity and achievement for the young person nurtured by your mentorship, caring, and love.

Event highlights will also include a Q&A session with DHS representatives and a panel discussion led by:

  • Luis Santiago Sobrado, DHS Operations Director, Policy Development and System Enhancement—moderator
  • Ebony Ali, S.P.L.A.T. Manager, Galaei
  • Sultan Shakir, President, Mazzoni Center
  • Ellie Waserman, Director of Life Skills, The Attic Youth Center
  • Katrina Clark, Resource Parent

Light refreshments and snacks will be served.

Please register by Wednesday, September 27.
