Welcome to Rainbow Access Initiative
Albany, NY


We know it can be difficult to make
the decision to seek support, and so we're honored that you've chosen to connect with RAI. 

RAI takes great pride in its work and truly understands the importance of providing care to LGBTQ+ communities. Because we are not able to accept any new clients at this time and our waitlist is temporarily closed, we encourage you to please visit the RAI LGBTQ+ Resource Directory tab to find other local LGBTQ+ affirming providers. 

We apologize for any inconvenience and encourage you to follow your journey to becoming the person you are meant to be! 


Serving the Capital Region and Beyond

Dedicated to affirming & comprehensive mental health care and case management services for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Communities (LGBTQ+) and Families.


We are committed to the education and training of health and human service providers and the dissolution of barriers between the established health care delivery system and the disenfranchised community of sexual minorities.


We are committed to the development of supportive programs that are inclusive to the health and human service needs of LGBTQ+ people of color, people with disabilities, rural people, and parents through the empowerment of LGBTQ+ consumers and advocates.

LGBTQ+ Access & Empowerment

“There is no formula when it comes to gender and sexuality. Yet it is often only people whose gender identity and/or sexual orientation negates society’s heteronormative and cisnormative standards who are targets of stigma, discrimination, and violence. I wish that instead of investing in these hierarchies of what’s right and who’s wrong, what’s authentic and who’s not, and ranking people according to these rigid standards that ignore diversity in our genders and sexualities, we gave people freedom and resources to define, determine, and declare who they are.”

-Janet Mock

Transition Support

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to assist health care providers to embrace new strategies for ensuring their services are Trans inclusive. LGBTQ+ Competent Health Care is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
