This is a safe and welcoming space for transgender people, gender non-binary people, those questioning their gender identity, and their family, friends and allies. This meeting is created for the purpose of finding connection with others of similar life experience, sharing information and supporting each other. This is a peer facilitated group and not a clinical therapy group.
Our time together includes both group conversation and information sharing focused on the gender spectrum as we experience it, as well as some informal social time. We meet together as one group and, if desired, we offer a separate space for family and friends so there is space for everyone to find the connection and support they most need. There is time at the end for everyone to visit and socialize.
We meet at Mosaic in Goshen which is on the campus of Oaklawn. The address is 330 Lakeview Drive, Goshen. It’s on the north end of Goshen off of IN-15. When you turn in at the Oaklawn sign, follow the drive all the way to the end. You will see a gray building in front of you. Park in the lot and head in the door labeled “Main Entrance”. There is a receptionist inside the door who will point you toward our meeting space, in case we are not there greeting you personally. We are very excited to welcome you to Mosaic! Coffee, juice and pastries will be provided!
