What is SEARCH?
S.E.A.R.CH. stands for Safe Environment for the Acceptance of Rainbow Children.

This is a monthly event where Rainbow Children (gender-expansive, kindergarten-5th graders) can congregate for nonjudgmental, free play in a safe environment, and parents/caregivers can gather for support and educational dialogue about the gender spectrum, and the issues we face raising these children.

There is a Facebook group for S.E.A.R.CH. (Anyone who submits a Facebook group request will be asked to complete a brief screening questionnaire. If you refer a friend, please tell them to check their Facebook inbox under "filtered requests.")
