Self-Care & Support Services

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the New Haven Pride Center has prioritized making sure that our support programs and case management services has had no interruption. We have further ensured that our transition to virtual service has also been seamless. On this page you will find information about our case management services, support programming, and self-care tricks during social distancing.

Our whole staff has been tasked with actively participating in support programming. Together we have created self-care materials, infographs for parents to talk to their children about COVID-19, and collected resources that we update daily.

Also make sure you check out our COVID-19 Resources page and our Online Events & Activities page.
