Organizations providing support for individuals who have felt misunderstood or mistreated while attempting to change their sexual feelings, behaviors, or identities

Note from Janelle: I include these resources because there is a large number of men and women who are not finding the type of support they desire in many of the above listed organizations. Again, while I may not fully endorse the beliefs of these organizations, I support their genuine effort to reach out to people who find themselves again marginalized within faith-based communities.
