WHAT WE DO

SOCIAL SERVICES
FOSTER CARE

At Persad Center, we believe that both LGBTQ+ identifying children and parents deserve safe, loving homes. We serve all children, yet recognize that LGBTQ+ youth often experience the trauma of family rejection and homelessness, so we are dedicated to working with partners which will ensure their health, safety, and welfare. At Persad Center, we know that families are defined in many different ways and come in diverse shapes and sizes. We work with partners who help families create home environments defined by love, dignity and respect. Our partners can accommodate married, single, or partnered people of all sexual orientations, genders, races, ethnicities, and religions who have a desire to help a child succeed.  For more information, contact Melissa Perkins, mperkins@persadcenter.org
