Our Merger with Path2Parenthood

At the start of October 2018, Family Equality announced a merger with Path2Parenthood, bringing Path2Parenthood’s comprehensive family-building educational work to the LGBTQ community as a program of Family Equality.

In the past decade, Path2Parenthood has become a leader in family-building education for the LGBTQ community, and we are delighted to expand these services as part of Family Equality’s comprehensive programming for LGBTQ families and those who wish to form them.
