Our Emergency Assistance Program is board-led and comprised of a network of compassionate volunteers who are carefully selected and trained to help homeless transgender adults from all walks of life who suddenly find themselves without a home.
With your assistance, we help provide our clients with temporary emergency housing in our host homes, transportation to temporary housing, appointments, and workplaces, while we put them in touch with local services to help them get the resources they need to get back on their feet. Join our community and make a difference!
The Transgender Assistance Program of Virginia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to end homelessness within the local transgender community in Virginia. Our goal is to offer safe emergency and temporary transitional housing to homeless transgender adults in our community, and to help them find the additional resources they need to remove the barriers to self-sufficiency.
Our program is unique because it is run by the transgender community for the transgender community.
Our vision is to see the transgender community, and their allies, unite together to help transgender and gender non-conforming members of our community receive the resources they need to recover from hardship, free from discrimination, harassment, or violence due to their gender identity or gender expression.
The Transgender Assistance Program of Virginia follows an equal opportunity employment policy and employs personnel without regard to race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status.

Every October, transgender and gender nonconforming folks are joined by friends, family, and allies for TIES. At the 2017 TIES conference, we welcomed more than 250 individuals identifying as trans or gender nonconforming who participated in day’s programs alongside over 100 allies.
The most important aspect of the Transgender Information and Empowerment Summit (TIES) is community. To us, community means trust, solidarity, and a shared respect for people who are transgender and gender diverse. The summit is an opportunity to build that community – to learn from and with each other in an intentional and empowering space. TIES offers information that is designed to meet the interests and needs of transgender individuals, partners, parents, youth, and allies to strengthen the transgender community across Virginia!
TAPVA is proud to be a community voice for this important event.
