Our Meals for Christmas community initiative, which began in 2017, now annually serves over 300 Chicago area homeless and others in housing insecurity. To better ensure the physical and emotional wellbeing of trans and nonbinary people. In 2020, during the COVID-19 epidemic, Life is Work found significant gaps in support and initiative for transgender Non-binary (TGNB) communities of color.
We overcame several challenges to reach and support Transgender Non-binary persons of color on Chicago's West Side. The creation of a Resource Center and a Resale Boutique in the middle of an outbreak of anti-transgender legislation at the state and federal levels has been an enormous task. It's become harder for our clients to get the basics like a roof over their heads, medical care, and a steady paycheck.
