There are a number of other organizations that reach out to individuals dealing with unwanted homosexual attractions. These seem to be generally reliable groups with principles compatible with Evergreen's mission however; we do not endorse any one of them unconditionally. Use your head! Some of their services may be helpful and others may not be useful to you or your situation.
If you have a bad experience with any of them please let us know so we can remove questionable organizations from the list. We feel it is better to help you find possible resources knowing there are some risks involved and trust your discernment.
