Hamilton Child and Family Supports has been an active participant at the Hamilton Pride festival for many years and we are inclusive and welcoming to potential foster and adoptive families within the LGBT2SQ+ community.

The organization recognizes the vibrant, diverse and intersectional communities falling within the LGBT2SQ+ community, especially when children and young persons are in contact with the child welfare system.

The agency has a long-standing LGBT2SQ+ staff committee where we have planned learning opportunities for staff and foster families, special events, created our own logo and participated in the provincial self-assessment tool that allowed us to understand the key areas we need to improve service and understanding with LGBT2SQ+ services.
