Transfamily Support Group
Originally founded by Shane Hill, the Transfamily Support Group has blossomed into a community of parents who are dedicated to supporting and loving one another through the process of their children’s transition. Now led by Heidi Koronkowski, the Transfamily Support Group is a parent-led peer-to-peer opportunity for parents of transgender-identified people to gather and share their experiences with one another as they receive the support they need.
The Transfamily Support Group of dedicated parents has been able to ask the questions, voice the fears, and see that they are not alone while being supported by one another. Through social events for parents and their kids and by providing parent-to-parent support, these once-isolated families continue to develop a thriving community. The Transfamily Support Group is a vital asset to the Santa Cruz families and continues to make an immeasurable impact on the lives of all they touch.
In 2012, the Transfamily Support Group received the Organizational Ally to Queer Youth Award at the 16th Annual Queer Youth Leadership Awards.
Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) of Santa Cruz County meets the second Tuesday of every month from 7-9 pm at First Congregational Church of Santa Cruz at 900 High Street in Santa Cruz.
