Guiding Harbor is committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all children and families. Our agency welcomes and supports LGBTQ+ individuals and families who are interested in providing loving and stable homes for children in foster care. We believe that every child deserves a supportive and accepting family, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.

We actively seek foster families that are supportive and accepting of the LGBTQ+ community because we believe in providing safe and loving homes for all children. LGBTQ+ youth are overrepresented in the foster care system, and it is essential that they are placed in homes where they are fully embraced and respected for who they are. By recruiting families who are LGBTQ+ affirming, we ensure that these children experience a nurturing environment where they can thrive, free from discrimination or prejudice. Every child deserves a family that loves and accepts them unconditionally, and our commitment to inclusivity reflects our dedication to this principle.
