Born out of an HIV testing initiative in 2017, OUR (On-hand Unique Resources) Way quickly morphed into a weekly drop-in program (OUR Space by OUR Way) intended to “meet trans individuals where they are” and helping trans individuals get the services, resources, and support they need.
OUR Space is a drop-in support space for everyone identifying along the transgender spectrum or questioning their gender identity. OUR Space offers a variety of medical, social, and emotional supports to members. While the program initially focused on reducing the HIV Incidence within trans communities, it has become a lightning rod for trans advocacy and engagement across the city.
Some regular activities and resources that take place during OUR Space:
- Creative Writing
- Art Therapy
- Movie Night
- One on One Peer Support
- Clothing Closet (OUR Closet)
- Advice Hour
- Health, Wellness, and Legal Referrals
