Transgender Values

There are many reasons that make the Transgender Center special. The most important reason is that we are community powered. Each and every group, program and service is conceived of, put together and run by the Houston TG Community. Call 713-520-8586 to learn how you can help or make the choice to give.

How did this come about? The TG community has taken ownership of it’s own needs because we understand that all will be well as long as we make the choice to be there for each other. We choose to make life better for those that are just starting their transition. We choose to be there for our brothers and sisters when nobody else is willing to. We know that for many people, the TG Center represents “the last house on the block.”

Community Value: Our brothers and sisters do not deserve to go to bed hungry.

We feel that this:

(Amount of food the TG Center distributed on 3/30/10)

… is better than this:

(Allowing community members to go hungry)

Community Value: Our brothers and sisters deserve housing.

While no emergency shelter in Houston is willing to house a transgender person, we choose to be there.

We feel that this:

(Just one of several beds the TG Center provided homeless TGs on 3/30/10)

… is better than this:

(Being on the streets)

What do you value?

We at the TG Center provide homeless assistance, HIV testing, risk reduction and many other services to the TG Community since opening our doors in 2008. The TG Center is run by Transgender foundation of America, a grass-roots nonprofit community organization that was started in 2001 by members of the Houston TG Community.
