Umbrella is pleased to offer a new recovery support group for individuals that are part of the LGBTQ2S+ community.

We know that addiction affects people who identify as LGBTQ2S+ at a higher rate, and Umbrella understands the importance of a safe space to offer support and connection. Starting December 8, our facilitators Braelynne and Theo bring their knowledge, passion and lived experience to this weekly group.

* Due to COVID, we have a limit of 6 participants in person.
To secure a spot, you MUST register the day of the group, before 1pm and agree to Umbrella COVID protocols. All others will be invited to join the group by ZOOM, details below.
