The Transgender Health and Wellness Center is diligent in its efforts to ensure that the transgender, intersex and gender non-conforming people not only have a safe place to live but, also we ensure that we help those in need to find furniture and other important items for their new homes.
In July 2010, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development clarified that the Fair Housing Act's (FHA) prohibition against “gender discrimination” included protection for transgender people. The FHA is the federal law that prohibits discrimination in federally funded housing, properties, as well as with regard to federal housing loans and accommodations. This is a significant civil protection to help the transgender community have the necessary tools and stability to succeed.
In 2015, the Inland Empire Transgender Health and Wellness Survey, " higher levels of education did not translate to higher levels of employment with survey respondents. Only 18.9% of respondents were employed full time, whereas 52.6% of Inland Empire adults had full time employment (CHIS, 2014). Further, 15.6% of survey respondents directly attribute their transgender status to being unemployed."
