If you are seeking LGBTQIA+ RESOURCES such as queer and trans education, or would like to learn more about Faith's policy on inclusivity, there are several resources available. LGBTQ+ Identities and their Meanings is a Faith Lutheran publication briefly touching on different gender and sexual identities. Your Trans Neighbor touches on the basics of what it means to be transgender. For more faith-based, LGBTQ+ education, check out Reconciling Works's Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation resources. If you are in need of counseiling, support groups, or would like to learn more about the broader LGBTQIA+ community of Chico, check out Stonewall Alliance Center.
If you are seeking resources such as FOOD or SHELTER the Torres Shelter and Jesus Center are equipped to house and feed those in need. You may also call Northern Valley Catholic Social Services where they can direct you to places who offer food, shelter, behavior health resources, disaster relief, and more. The North State Food Bank, Salvation Army, or Chico Rescue Mission ((530) 343-1935) may be able to help out with food as well. Trinity Methodist distributes food every Saturday from 2-3pm.
