Outreach & Education


Street-Based Outreach

The Street-Based Outreach program engages LGBTQ+ people who are homeless, as well as street-based and runaway youth, throughout the Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The Street-Based Outreach program provides the following: safer-sex supplies, harm-reduction focused HIV/STI prevention information, food delivery, referrals to our Drop-In Center, and additional services.

Community-Based Outreach

Our Community-Based Outreach program trains schools, community centers, religious organizations, and other entities that work with LGBTQ+ youth to ensure that they are providing LGBTQ+ sensitive care and increase cultural competence among these providers. Because TruEvolution participates in several coalitions that address the needs of homeless, runaway, and street-based youth, representing the unique struggles of LGBTQ+ young people, this program collaborates with other organizations on best practices and services for the populations we serve.

Community Health Education

TruEvolution provides trainings for community-based organizations, hospitals, health centers, schools, conferences, and more. Our trainings center on a sex-positive and culturally-reflective insight into the needs and disparities of special populations. LGBTQ+ communities, youth, LGBTQ+ youth of color, homeless populations, and those living with HIV are part of the communities we serve.

We are committed to creating educational and training opportunities to inform and equip institutions with meaningful insight on the populations we serve. In addition, TruEvolution has a team of clinicians who are available to train on trauma-informed and evidence-based practices for working with these communities.

Our trainings are not one-size-fits-all. Rather, they are tailored to fit the unique needs of each setting. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • - LGBTQ+ sensitivity
  • - Transgender sensitivity
  • - Meet the unique health-related needs of the LGBTQ+ community, with a focus on the transgender community in particular
  • - Promote sexual health through prevention, screening, and treatment.
  • - Provide sensitive, affirmative, and informed care for special populations.
  • - HIV/AIDS education

If an institution or organization is interested in scheduling a training, they should contact programs@truevolution.org or call 951-888-1346, extension 4.
