"The Center, it's for everyone!"
The Center's slogan rings particularly true for members of the transgender community. Our intent is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome, safe and an equal partner in the LGBT community. All of The Center's programs are transgender-inclusive and supportive but we also offer services designed specifically for the transgender community.
On the Second Tuesday of each month the Trans Counseling Group meets at The Center beginning at 6:30 p.m. If you'd like to speak to the group's facilitator prior to attending a meeting, please call 760-416-7899 and leave a message for Jill Hingston, LMFT at extension 170.
The Center supports various Transgender Day of Remembrance & Transgender Day of Visibility events. The Center also hosts periodic presentations, classes and seminars such as; transgender heath care, author presentations plus employment and legal seminars. The Center has recently adapted the SAGEworks job training program to address employment challenges unique to the transgender community. The SAGEworks program includes employment assessments, computer instruction, and one-on-one consultations with a professional recruiter.
The Center also offers low and no-cost counseling to the LGBT community for individual, family & couples. Cost is on a sliding scale based on income.
