Counseling Group: Emergence: A POC Support Group

This 10 week group is designed specifically to provide an affirming space for emerging adults of color (between 18 to 25) who identify as TGNCI and/or a woman. Participants will work with CWHC counselors Elinor and Mariana to build a community by sharing and honoring the unique experiences of each individual, incorporating various forms of creative expression, and creating or building upon a foundation for mental, physical, and sexual health and wellbeing.

Topics will be based upon the interests and experiences of participants, but might include: navigating mental health resources as a POC, trust-forming and boundary creation, building a chosen family, and more.

Alternative Insemination groups

Alternative Insemination (AI) Peer Support Group

Join CWHC for an ongoing, drop-in, peer-led Alternative Insemination (AI) support group on the fourth Tuesday of each month! 

Not only an opportunity for those interested in AI to talk with people who have experienced the process firsthand, the AI Peer Support Group offers the chance for those currently doing inseminations to share with and support others who are going through the same process.

Come to CWHC's meeting room, at 1025 W. Sunnyside, and meet other families who have had (or are expecting!) children through donor insemination.

Register at any time, but at least five days before a meeting. For more information, contact the Alternative Insemination Program at 773-935-6126 x223 or via email.
