Community Outreach

As part of our commitment to raising awareness about LGBTQ sexual health and HIV/STI prevention and other issues affecting the populations we serve, our community engagement and outreach teams perform education and outreach work in a variety of settings and contexts.

Mazzoni Center Street Team

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 at OUR Way) intended to “meet trans individuals where they are” and helping trans individuals get the services, resources, and support they need. 

The Trip Project

The Trip Project is a social movement created for men who have sex with men (MSM) and trans-identified people of color (POC) that creates hangout spaces, and offers opportunities to learn about, and connect to, services and programs.

Sisterly LOVE

Launched in 2013, Sisterly LOVE (Leading Others Via Education), is facilitated by Mazzoni Center in collaboration with a community advisory board of area trans women. Our aim is to build community among transgender women in Philadelphia.  

Condom Distribution

As part of our commitment to raising awareness about sexual health and HIV/STI prevention, and encouraging LGBTQ community members to practice safer sex, Mazzoni Center’s community engagement and outreach team distributes condoms free of charge in a variety of settings and contexts.
