The Transgender Assistance Program of Virginia - TAP VA is an all volunteer, trans led 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to end homelessness within the transgender community in Virginia. TAPVA provides educational opportunities around the important fact that trans rights are human rights by explaining the intersectionality between homelessness, discrimination, socioeconomic status and racism within the trans community in Virginia.
Our goal is to offer safe emergency housing to homeless transgender adults in Virginia, and to help them find the additional resources they need to remove the barriers to self-sufficiency while we continue to provide education surrounding the issues trans people face on a daily basis.
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.
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.
TAPVA provides educational training to organizations and agencies who want to become more inclusive and knowledgeable around the issues facing the transgender community in Virginia. If you are interested, please contact us at Transactivistva@gmail.com
Transgender Day of Remembrance 2022 will commemorate the trans people who have died by violence and help us remember how brave it is to live our authentic lives. This year, the event will be in-person at New Life MCC, 1000 Sunset Drive, Norfolk, Virginia and there will be a virtual/live-stream option. See our Facebook event for more details.
Sponsored by Transgender Assistance Program of Virginia, LGBT Life Center, New Life Metropolitan Community Church, amd Minority AIDS Support Services.
