WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO…
PFLAG was founded as a national organization in the early 1970s as the result of one mom’s desire to provide support for her son. Today the greatest desire of PFLAG Florence Oregon is to help create a community where those who are LGBT will feel safe and affirmed, and where no one will be at risk of suicide simply for being who they are.
