Serving Transgender, Non-Binary, and Intersex Clients

Welcome Here

This procedure aims to close service gaps for clients of all gender identities, with a focus on respectfully accommodating clients who identify as transgender, non-binary, and intersex. DHS is committed to a policy of respect for all individuals and families and does not tolerate discrimination on the basis of gender identity or expression. No one will be denied access to a gender-affirming facility or program because of their sex assigned at birth. DHS makes every effort to place clients where they feel safe, and where staff can ensure appropriate, affirming, and culturally competent services.
