San Francisco Opens First Housing Program For Transgenders And Gender Nonconforming Adults

WFMZ-


This Thursday, the coalition and Mayor Breed will cut the ribbon for Trans Home SF on Washington Street, San Francisco’s first home for trans adults.

Trans Home SF on Washington Street is a transitional housing program that will provide much needed shelter and wrap around services to up to thirteen transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) individuals annually. The home falls under San Francisco’s new Our Trans Home program that will support hundreds of low income TGNC community members find or keep their housing through rental subsidies, housing navigation, and case management.

“Every day our trans community struggles to find affordable and inclusive housing. Despite Trumps ongoing attacks San Francisco continues to have some of the strongest non-discrimination protections, although our ongoing housing crisis continues to impact our diverse community,” said San Francisco Mayor London Breed. “With one out of every two transgender San Franciscan having experienced homelessness, we knew we had to take bold steps to fix these inequities. I am honored to join the coalition to launch this first of it’s kind program because everyone deserves a safe place to call home.”
