The mission of Lyon-Martin Community Health Services is to provide high quality, compassionate and trauma-informed medical, gynecological, and mental health care services to trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and intersex (TGI) communities and cis-gender women with specific sensitivity to LGBQA sexual orientation, disability, size, race, ethnicity, and language regardless of immigration status or ability to pay.
We aim to eliminate health inequities for our communities by rooting our clinical practice in core foundational frameworks of intersectionality, anti-racism, reproductive and disability justice, self-determination, and harm reduction. As a community clinic, we believe our communities are best served by us and for us; that’s why community engagement and leadership development are central to our mission of community care and mutual aid. Finally, we are committed to increasing access to culturally responsive care for queer, trans, and intersex (QTI) people beyond our walls through provider training and education and addressing systemic barriers to equity through policy advocacy.
