Here for People of Transgender Experience

People of transgender and gender non-binary (TGNB) experience often face widespread discrimination and misunderstanding from health care providers. As a consequence, many persons of transgender experience do not have safe access to primary and preventive healthcare.
We're here to offer a trans-affirmative environment where clients can be linked to sexual health services, social and support groups, as well as engage in an ongoing relationship with a primary care provider and/or a mental health provider to address the full spectrum of health and wellness needs.
We also provide linkage to services tailored for clients of transgender experience that need additional support. Our staff offer information, assistance and referrals regarding benefits and entitlements, including insurance, housing, and linkages to other supportive services.

Trans Health Services include:

  • Linkage to Primary Care
  • Linkage to Chest/Breast Health
  • Hormone Care
  • Pelvic Wellness Exams; PAP Tests
  • Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Screenings & Treatment
  • HIV/AIDS Testing, Treatment & Prevention, including PrEP and PEP
  • Harm Reduction Counseling
  • Sexual Health Workshops. See Sexual Health page
