At the heart of Lyon-Martin’s mission is the belief that everyone deserves quality healthcare, regardless of their gender identity or expression. With their expanded facility, Lyon-Martin aims to serve an additional 1,000 patients annually, effectively doubling their impact on community health.

The San Francis Foundation is proud to support Lyon-Martin’s Capital Campaign. This investment isn’t just about financial assistance—it’s a testament to our shared vision of promoting health equity and inclusivity in San Francisco. By providing access to gender-affirming care and comprehensive healthcare services, Lyon-Martin plays a vital role in addressing the unique needs of marginalized populations.

Moreover, Lyon-Martin’s new location at 225 Valencia Street represents more than just a physical space—it’s a sanctuary where individuals can access care with dignity and respect. Located within a quarter mile of Lyon-Martin’s previous locations, this new site ensures continuity of care and strengthens their ties with local partner organizations and communities.

In a time when healthcare disparities persist and transgender rights are under threat, Lyon-Martin’s work is more important than ever. By standing shoulder to shoulder with Lyon-Martin, the San Francis Foundation is committed to championing health equity and promoting a future where everyone has access to the care they need.

Together, we’re not just partners—we’re allies in the fight for a healthier, more inclusive San Francisco. Join us in celebrating Lyon-Martin’s transformative impact on community health and in supporting their continued efforts to create a more equitable healthcare landscape for all.
