Compass Pointing North

Our goals are simple - protecting children, supporting families

Mission: To provide support, information and resources in a warm and welcoming environment to families questioning or looking for alternative solutions for children and loved ones experiencing gender dysphoria or adolescent onset gender dysphoria as well as for detransitioners. 


Vision & Values: Our goal is to guide family members struggling with gender dysphoria or detransition in Ohio. We will provide parent to parent, friend to friend mentoring and a gateway to professional services. This is a safe space where feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. We focus on mediation not medication. Empathizing not medicalizing. We value state laws protecting children from medical harms and provide resources to protect vulnerable individuals at this confusing intersection of their lives. We value privacy, honesty, hope, and open, truthful conversation.
