The Madison County Council on Alcoholism & Substance Abuse, Inc.



With support from the CNY Community Foundation, an LGBTQIA Network was formed in 2017 in Madison County. Housed at BRiDGES, the Network is a resource for LGBTQIA individuals and groups and their allies. The goal of the Network is to enhance the supports and resources that currently exist, to identify gaps and needs for services, and to bring together the community to raise awareness, increase support and reduce isolation.

Local providers, parents, community members, and school faculty have been trained in topics including: Safe Zone, Working with LGBTQ Youth and LGBTQ 101. LGBTQIA specific informational sheets were mailed to doctors’ office and schools throughout the county. If you or your business would like to join the LGBTQIA Network please email [email protected]
