The following organizations have support groups:

"As a safe, supportive environment, the Hudson Valley LGTBQ Community Center provides services, professional resources, and programs that unite the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community across lines of age, race, gender, and economics. Our purpose is to strengthen, support, and celebrate LGBTQ individuals, families, and groups in their efforts to achieve their fullest potential.  The Center strives for positive social change through advocacy, community education, cultural awareness, and wellness programs that assist in the creation, development, and growth of LGBTQ affirming organizations, institutions, and culture within the community at large." 



Lambda Peer Support Services is a not for profit, 501(C)(3) organization that provides workshops, on-going and short term support groups, Holiday Connections activities and other programs and activities for the LGBTQ Community of the lower Hudson Valley. All support groups are conducted by trained peer facilitators under the ongoing supervision of certified clinicians. LPSS, Inc. strives to foster a sense of community and to reduce the pain caused by homophobia, discrimination and prejudice.


Founded in 1983 and incorporated in 1993, The LOFT provides a safe gathering place for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and supportive community of New York's Lower Hudson Valley. The LOFT facilitates a wide range of educational, health, social service, and recreational programs, and advocates for improved services for our community.
