We Need Encircle 

When loved ones come out to their families, too often they feel forced to seek answers alone. The Encircle: Family and Youth Resource Center will enable families to do what they do best — support one another through challenging times. 

Here, families will discover reliable information and referrals based on nationally recognized best practices. All materials are tailored to meet the specific needs of our predominantly, but not exclusively, Mormon community. 

The majority of LGBTQ youth, adults, and family members experience higher rates of depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and family alienation. The latest research overwhelmingly reveals that the more love and acceptance sexual and gender minority youth are given, the more likely they are to succeed in life. And the most significant source of that love and acceptance is the family. 


Meaningful Design

Jared Connors, architectural designer, explains the plans we have for the Encircle Home. Encircle is Provo's first LGBTQ Family & Youth Resource Center. As you can see, we are in the middle of construction but could not wait to share our vision.
