ABOUT US

The Transgender Health & Wellness Center

We are a transgender-led organization that seeks to empower the LGBTQ+ residents of Southern California.

The transgender community remains the highest in unemployment, job discrimination, harassment, murder, HIV, and suicide.  To change this, we urge everyone to support their local trans-led organization.  Here at the Trans And Wellness Center, we invest more than anyone else back into this marginalized community.

A transgender-led organization receives an average of 0.015% of each dollar donated to LGBT organizations. The transgender community remains the highest statistic in unemployment, job discrimination, harassment, murder, HIV diagnosis, and suicide. To change this, we must begin supporting trans-led organizations that invest the most back into this marginalized community.

Transgender Services:

The services that we provide generate revenue for direct support to the less fortunate in the transgender, gender non-conforming, and intersex community.  We provide emergency clothing for LGBTQ+ abused foster children seeking new placement.  We also provide transitional clothing and rental assistance for those who find themselves homeless or abandoned by friends and family.  Our support also includes name- and gender-change assistance, guidance with all necessary legal documents, emergency hygiene supplies, food, mental health care, counseling, and hair removal services.

We Are Non-Profit:

For-profit businesses that provide medical services, laser hair removal, and electrolysis are primarily concerned with making a profit; so tend to give less back to the marginalized community they purport to serve.  Choosing who you support directly impacts the entire community, helping more trans-led organizations flourish.  Empowering transgender people begins with those whose motives are sincere.

Remember, change starts with you.
