Programs for Trans Clients
Transgender Housing Program
In the fall of 2015, we opened AFC's first transgender housing program. The 18-bed housing program is located in a safe Brooklyn neighborhood, and provides stabilizing housing for AFC transfeminine and transmasculine clients ages 16-20 for up to 18 months. The program addresses the specific concrete and emotional needs of our trans clients in a safe, affirming environment. We help connect these clients to the resources needed to become secure, independent adults.

Hormone Replacement Therapy
Through our ongoing partnership with the Institute for Family Health we offer hormone treatment to our transfeminine and transmasculine and gender-nonconforming clients via our on-site medical clinic. In conjunction with our transgender housing program, this is a vital resource for our out transgender clients who are seeking hormone replacement therapy.
Many of our clients are obtaining hormones through unsafe methods on the street or are on lengthy waitlists to receiving hormones at other clinics. The institute works with AFC to ensure that clients obtain hormones in the safest and least expensive fashion.
