Come join Trans:Thrive at San Francisco Community Health Center, St. James’ Infirmary, LYRIC, and The SF LGBT Center for Transformation Hub. This will be a place where you can get a meal and on the spot services and referrals ranging from health care to self-care.
We will have on the spot medical care to cover any health concerns, ranging from general health to transgender specific health care. Don’t have insurance? We can help you learn about your options for healthcare coverage. Plus Free HIV and STI screenings and those who qualify for the tests can receive up to $30 in gift cards. We will also be providing housing assessments, help for preparing name change documents, vouchers for DMV IDs and much more. And don’t miss out on getting a bit of pampering with free massages and haircuts.
Trans Thrive, which stands for Transgender Resource and Neighborhood Space (TRANS), and Transgender Health & Resource Initiative for Vital Empowerment (THRIVE) was the new incarnation of the transgender drop-in started by UCSF and transferred to Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center. As part of the newly branded SF Community Health Center, Trans Thrive now includes all services provided for the Trans/GNC community at SFCHC. Trans Thrive is more than a drop in center, it’s services for US, by US.
We aim to create safe spaces, events and services for the entire Trans/GNC community. From case management and medical services (including Primary Care, HRT and Needle Exchange), to mental health and substance use support, to social groups and special events, to a drop in center (with snacks and refreshments, clothing closet and a computer lab), we have it all! We are trans services for US, by US. Together, we can get to health, wellness, and equality
