Parking

Downtown parking can be challenging, but there are a number of options for Resource Center visitors. Metered parking is located on 4th Street, 3rd Street, and Broadway. There are also several downtown parking garages. We ask that visitors refrain from parking in front of the church unless they have mobility issues, these spaces need to be available for church patrons. In the evening (generally after 5:00) and on the weekends visitors may park in the US Bank parking lot behind the resource center.

Resources

Parenting Resources

The 406 Pride Resource Center is here to provide information for questioning individuals and their parents. We believe that an informed, supportive family plays an instrumental role in an person’s ability to lead a happy fulfilled life. To help individuals and families create and maintain healthy supportive bonds, we provide help and guidance about the coming out process; information about how to effectively communicate, including definitions of gender identity and sexual orientation; and a support group for parents, families, and allies of LGBTQ+ individuals.

The resource center is also here to help families lead by LGBTQ+ individuals develop and maintain a strong sense of community through family friendly events, group meetings, and support networks of other community members and families.
