LGBTQ+ Family Connections Center
The LGBTQ+ Family Connections Center mission began with Cofounders Joe Barb, and Lambert Miller questioning the lack of services and programs for LGBTQ+ youth, individuals and families in Rural America, and those impacted by LGBTQ+ issues after conducting a community needs survey.
Their research uncovered an enormous lack of community support in therapeutic programs, mental health services, crisis intervention, communication workshops, emergency shelter, long term housing assistance, and case management targeted to LGBTQ+ youth, families and individuals seeking life changing interactions, healing, communication, and connections in the Upper Great Plains, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and Nebraska.
To fill this unmet need, the founders sought to create a Destination LGBTQ+ Family Counseling Center, with mobile outreach in adjoining areas, in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota serving LGBTQ+ Rural Americans in the Upper Great Plains, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and Nebraska.
