There is confusion regarding the origins of sexual orientation...

Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles; most people experience little or no sense of choice about their sexual orientation. (American Psychological Association, 2008).


We believe we are all free...
Some live a heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, or transsexual life, while others are unsure about their sexuality and seek to explore alternatives. We uphold your right of self-determination, to follow the path that fills your heart with love.

We value...

We value your right of autonomy. We love and appreciate you just as you are or how you wish to be. We are committed to accompanying you on your journey of self discovery. We respect your faith and values, and how they impact your choices.

Our goal...

Our goal is to promote healthy individuals and relationships, while assisting in the healing of families, communities, and places of worship.
