Community drives our work in every sense of the word, and that means we take every effort to center people in every decision we make—from how we show up in community, to how we care for our staff team.
As an organization, we know that supporting our team in every way we can is foundational to living out our values, and helps us ensure our team is set up to best serve our communities every day. With that in mind, we’re excited to share some of our inner working in hopes it will shine a light on gender affirming care and our responsibility as an employer to help folks navigate accessing that care.

We also know that the insurance that makes gender affirming care accessible can be challenging to navigate, to say the least.
