Welcome to the Family Acceptance Project


The Family Acceptance Project® is a research, intervention, education and policy initiative to prevent health and mental health risks and to promote well-being for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-identified (LGBTQ) children and youth, including suicide, homelessness, drug use and HIV — in the context of their families, cultures and faith communities.

Our team has put research into practice by developing and implementing the Family Acceptance Project’s Family Support Model - the first of its kind - to prevent health risks, strengthen families and build healthy futures for LGBTQ and gender diverse children and youth. We provide training and consultation on working with diverse families and implementing FAP's evidence-based family support model across the United States and in other countries.
