WE ARE FREE🥳🥳🥳🥳
Lyon-Martin Community Health Services is an independent nonprofit!!
WE SUCCESSFULLY RECLAIMED OUR CLINIC
Two years ago, our communities rallied to Save Lyon-Martin from the threat of closure.
Together, we successfully secured funding from the city to keep our doors open.
As of last week, on March 16, 2022, Lyon-Martin officially separated from HealthRIGHT 360 and obtained independent non-profit status.
Independence has allowed us to reinvest in our decades old by us, for us roots, centering TGI, Queer, & BIPOC providers, staff, and leadership more than ever before. We now have:
100% Trans Directorship
100% Queer Directorship
100% Black Trans Clinical Directorship
Over 70% Trans Staff
Over 65% BIPOC staff
6 of 7 Trans Primary Care Providers
7 of 9 Trans Mental Health Providers
And, a new mission:
The mission of Lyon-Martin Community Health is to provide trauma-informed medical, gynecological, and mental health care to Trans, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming, & Intersex communities and cis-gender women with specific sensitivity to LBQA+ 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, self-determination, harm reduction, anti-racism, and reproductive and disability justice.
As a community clinic, we believe our communities are best served by and for us; that’s why community engagement and leadership development are central to our mission of community care and mutual aid. Lastly, we are committed to increasing access to culturally responsive care beyond our walls through provider training and education, and addressing systemic barriers to equity through policy advocacy.
We expanded programming and improved technology!
This is the beginning of a bright new chapter of Lyon-Martin’s storied history book, one solidly rooted in our collective visions of community care, crafted over generations.
