Rainbow Access Initiative
Serving the Capital Region and Beyond
Dedicated to ensuring the comprehensive physical and mental health care and human services for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Communities (LGBTQ+) and our 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
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.
“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.”
Counseling, Advocacy and Support
Our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Learn more about our work by getting in contact with our team today.
