An Encourage support group will start to meet in the Quad City area the beginning of November and a local Courage group is already meeting near Iowa City. Encourage is the Courage affiliate support group for family members, spouses, and friends of men and women experiencing same-sex attraction. Courage is a support group for Catholic men and women who experience same-sex attractions and desire to live chaste lives following the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
If you know of individuals or families who might benefit from the support of these groups, askthem to contact one of the persons below for information on meeting dates, times and locations. All communications will be kept confidential.
