Our advocacy program was created to address a need in our community, Life is complicated and once in a while we all need a little help figuring out what to do next. Our advocacy program may be able to help, it's totally free.

Transition is a personal process that is different for everyone. As with many things in life, there is more than one road to take and none of them are wrong.

Advocacy Services 

The program works to connect community members with community resources, and to assist community members in navigating all GHC services when appropriate, such as counseling, name and gender change assistance, health care navigation, referral to legal aid, health care enrollment, hormone clinic and other GHC Services.

Name and Gender Change Paperwork Assistance 

Advocates assist clients in filling out name and gender change court paperwork and identity documents, such as driver license, birth certificate, passport and social security changes; become familiar with the court process for changing name and gender; provide information to clients around the process for legal name and gender change.
