Your donation will make this possible!We invite LGBTQ+ youth and young adults (13-23) to a warm, festive, and fully accepting holiday dinner with us. We are a group of moms, dads, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins who extend our holiday love to you as if you were our own family.

Come to enjoy dinner, dessert, and holiday music with us! You are welcome to invite your friends, family, and supporters, or come alone. Youth13-17 attending without a parent or guardian will need a signed parent permission slip (available at drop off). Youth safety is our priority and our volunteers have been background checked and verified.

Please RSVP at the link on the event page to make sure we save a seat at the table for you and prepare enough food for all to enjoy! https://www.facebook.com/events/139145993402081/?ti=icl

There is no fee to attend. When you arrive, enter via the "Fellowship Hall" entrance on the Campbell Ave side of the church.

I am overwhelmed by the support coming through for this dinner! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated their ideas, time, and money! If we exceed the goal, I'll be sure to put your donations to good use and make the dinner even better.

The one thing people could REALLY help us with is getting the word out to the LGBTQ+ youth and young adult community in and around West Haven, CT and surrounding towns.

Please share our event on Facebook, Instagram (fccwh), Twitter (@FCCWH), and print out our flyer and post wherever you can that you think would be helpful to spread the word! Many, many thanks and love on behalf of your holiday family!
