ASK (Alphabet Soup Kids)

ASK is an open support and social group for LGBTQ+ students ages 12-18 and all denominations are welcomed. There is no such group in our area and the only support available is if their schools have a GSA program. The group will be under the direction of licensed professional counselor, Barbara P. Conrad, MS & certified in Gestalt Therapy, & Sharon Zimmer, MS in Educational Counseling.

The coming out process is tough enough and it essential to have a place our LGBTQ youth can turn to for help and support.
