The I Am Human Foundation

Empowering Lives One Human At A Time

Our Mission and Services

“I AM HUMAN”. These three simple words encapsulate our mission as an organization. Founded by a trans man of color, I Am Human was created to empower the lives of LGBTQIA individuals. Our goal is to create a safe space for individuals who are homeless, living with HIV, and trans youth, with a focus on those who experience discrimination due to their lifestyle or gender identity. We aim to break the barriers with regard to the societal disparities in education, employment, healthcare, and housing. Our group is driven by a commitment to ensure all trans and gender non-conforming people are treated fairly and protected from violence. We don’t see race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation…..We see Human!!
