Monthly Group Support Meetings

We meet at 7:00 pm the first Tuesday of each month in a secure online environment via Zoom.

To attend next month's meeting, fill out and submit the form below. All information provided remains confidential.  The link is different each month, and we email it out to those who have requested it each month by noon on the day of the support group meeting.

If you need help before our next monthly meeting or prefer a non-group setting, we have individuals who are willing to email, talk on the phone, meet for coffee...whatever makes you comfortable and provides the support you need.  We make every attempt to have someone get back to you within 48 hours, but sometimes it can take up to 7 days. Just fill out and submit the form below.  All information provided remains confidential.

 

What to Expect at a Meeting

  • We quietly greet newcomers and returning members.
  • We open the meeting reading the PFLAG mission statement and stressing to all the requirement of confidentiality.  "What is said here stays here."

  • We announce any upcoming events involving our Portland PFLAG chapter.
  • We introduce ourselves and briefly explain why we are attending the meeting. Newcomers can participate to the degree they feel comfortable.

  • We open the support part of the meeting to any topic that attendees wish to discuss: concerns, dilemmas, struggles, joys or insights.
  • In the past, when meetings could be in person, some meetings would feature a speaker or panel discussion during the second hour.  That may return after the pandemic has been brought into control.
