TruEvolution fights for health equity and racial justice to advance the quality of life and human dignity of LGBTQ people.
TruEvolution fights for health equity and racial justice to advance the quality of life and human dignity of LGBTQ+ people. Since 2008, we have expanded our local advocacy to regional services offering HIV testing, linkage to care and case management for people living with HIV. As an LGBTQ+ justice organization, we focus our efforts on addressing health disparities in LGBTQ communities of color through community outreach, health education, and prevention programs.
In an effort to center social determinants in our service-delivery and outreach, TruEvolution offers emergency supportive housing services for people living with HIV.
Recognizing the gaps in comprehensive, culturally-competent behavioral health services throughout the Inland Empire, TruEvolution opened our behavioral health clinic in 2017. We offer psychotherapy, behavioral health risk assessments, support groups, peer counselors, care coordinators, and emergency mental health interventions with a licensed clinical social worker.
Transgender health and wellness is embedded in each of the clinics full-time clinicians, per diem therapist, support group facilitators, peer counselors and care coordinators. Providing mental health letters for surgical procedures, linkage to Hormone Replacement Therapy services, endocrinologist referrals, and on-going psychotherapy throughout the stages of gender affirmation. We strive to assure that the entire physical, sexual, and emotional status of our clients is well.
As an advocacy organization, TruEvolution leads its community engagement and public policy efforts on issues directly impacting communities of color in underserved regions. Such efforts include our Youth United high school outreach program for LGBTQ+ youth to learn and engage in health education, services, in a peer-to-peer learning environment.
Community-based organizations serve a vital role in public health infrastructure. TruEvolution works in coalition with other community agencies to bring voice the policy priorities and gaps in resources for community-based organizations and the communities we serve.
