REOPENING THIS SEARCH:
Since 2009, RECLAIM has provided accessible therapeutic support to queer and trans youth. In this unique healing space, queer and trans youth are supported to transform themselves and take leadership in co-creating RECLAIM’s work. Many clients, alumni, and their parents have described RECLAIM’s therapeutic services as “life-saving.” In addition to the direct services provided to clients, RECLAIM works to change the broader systems of support available to queer and trans youth.
RECLAIM’s mission is to increase access to mental health support for queer and trans youth so they might reclaim their lives from oppression in all forms. RECLAIM accomplishes this mission through deep practitioner development, training, education, outreach, and community partnerships at the intersection of gender and racial justice. RECLAIM currently serves about 60% youth of color and 90% transgender youth - the majority from the Twin Cities metro area.
