Saint Francis Foundation is pleased to share that our community partner, the San Francisco Community Health Center, recently celebrated the grand opening of the new Trans Thrive facility at 1460 Pine Street. This 8,000-square-foot center is turning point for the transgender and gender non-conforming community as it provides them with a safe and welcoming space to access healthcare and social services.
Trans Thrive is a program of the San Francisco Community Health Center that provides healthcare services for transgender individuals. The program was established in 2007 and has been providing services to the community ever since. The program’s aim is to provide accessible, culturally competent, and holistic healthcare services to transgender and gender nonconforming individuals in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The program offers a range of healthcare services, including case management and medical services (including Primary Care, HRT and Needle Exchange), to mental health and substance use support.
The opening of the new Trans Thrive location is an important milestone for the transgender community. Transgender individuals often face significant barriers to accessing healthcare, including discrimination, lack of understanding from healthcare providers, and financial barriers. By providing accessible, culturally competent, and holistic healthcare services, Trans Thrive is helping to break down these barriers and ensure that the transgender community has access to the care they need.
The program is a testament to the San Francisco Community Health Center’s commitment that everyone deserves to be healthy and receives the highest quality medical, dental, and behavioral health care.
