June is LGBTQ Pride Month
Through your gift, you are contributing to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.
Throughout the month of June, Americans will observe National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride (LGBT) Month. This month, individuals and groups will band together to generate awareness around LGBT issues and eliminate discrimination and violence toward LGBT people.
“Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health is proud to have a rich history assisting diverse populations of individuals in need of our support, regardless of their ethnicity, race, religion or sexual orientation,” said Devereux Georgia Executive Director for Mental Health Services Dr. Yolanda Graham. “We strongly stand by LGBTQ individuals across the country who so desperately need our support.”
Devereux is proud to have a strong partnership with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the leading LGBTQ rights and advocacy organization in the nation. To date, our Arizona, our Florida and Georgia centers have earned the “HRC All Children - All Families Seal of Recognition” in 2012. The All Children - All Families initiative provides a framework for agencies to establish policies and practices that welcome, support and affirm LGBTQ foster and adoptive parents.
