HEALTHCARE

Adolescent LGBTQI+ Care

It is our priority to serve the next generation of LGBTQI+ people and we seek to remove barriers that LGBTQI+ people have faced in the past. We are proud to offer LGBTQI+ healthcare for adolescents and teens with a compassionate and confidential program.

LGBTQI+ youth meet with medical providers who understand their needs and are supported by the whole staff who belong to the LGBTQI+ community. Our goal is to allow that child to live authentically—to be fully seen and supported— so they may reach their highest potential. With our services, both LGBTQI+ adults with LGBTQI+ children are also welcome.

The transgender, gender non-conforming and intersex (TGI) youth will be seen by a clinician who understands their specific medical needs. With the parent or guardians’ consent we can also provide hormone replacement therapy and blockers with authorization from a medical provider. We also can provide surgical implants for blocking sex hormones to treat the TGI’s gender dysphoria, if needed.
