The only agency in New Mexico that exists solely to serve the transgender communities, TGRCNM offers drop in services (snack, place to rest, someone to talk to, a safe place to be yourself); computer usage and training; a lending library; support groups; free (no blood) HIV testing; syringe exchange; youth programming; an open donation closet for folks who need clothes, binders and other items; informal case management; and help, information and referrals on name change, medical care and more for the transgender and gender variant people of Albuquerque and their loved ones. TGRCNM also engages the communities with social events and partners with many organizations and agencies all around the state to make New Mexico a better place. We have free counseling with volunteer therapists, and we intend to be developing more resources around housing and employment in the next year.
TGRCNM and its Speakers Bureau also offer exceptional training on transgender lives and issues for ANY class or workplace or group that will have us in to teach them.
We also do advocacy for individuals and for the transgender communities of New Mexico in many varied settings.
