Our non-profit of the week is the Santa Barbara Transgender Advocacy Network (SB TAN). SBTAN was just one of many groups at this years annual Pride Festival at Chase Palm Park. SBTAN provides a space for transgender individuals, friends, families, and allies to congregate as well as hosts monthly meetings and meet ups.  

Services offered range from psychological to academic and the group even provides training to medical professionals. Resources include:

  • Health care
  • Training for clinicians
  • Faith/Religion institutions
  • Directory of SBTAN trained mental health professionals
  • Information on laws and policies that impact trans youth

Additionally, The Santa Barbara Transgender Center (Lisa's Place), is an extension of the SBTAN youth and famiy program, and welcomes people of all ages and expressions to meet up and hang out. We are thankful and proud to have this resource in our community available to help folks of all walks of life feel loved and welcome. You can read more about SBTAN here.

Thank you, Edhat, for choosing this for the non-profit of this week. It is extremely important now with the bigoted spewing from DC.

On behalf of the board of directors at SBTAN, we are very thankful for this generous recognition by the Edhat community.  By providing education, safe space and support for families and friends, we strive to build a safer and more productive future for the transgender and gender expansive members of our society.  Our next event encourages the community to invite their medical and health providers such as doctors and therapists to attend our trans-youth care educational symposium to be held in November 18th and 19th, 2017.  Please visit our website SBTAN.ORG or contact us for more information about registering for this event or any questions you may have.
