TRANSITIONS

Launched in Omaha, Nebraska in 2018, Black and Pink’s TRANSitions program is a pathway toward safe housing for people who are system impacted and identify as transgender women, gender nonconforming individuals, and queer people living with HIV/AIDS. The program began by serving formerly incarcerated transgendered women, often of color, who experienced housing instability. While this program continues to focus on providing housing for women, we acknowledge that gender is often not binary in the LGBTQ community. After establishing a partnership with local apartment owners, Black and Pink provides the down payment, as well as two month’s rent for participants, which waives background and credit checks that often act as a barrier.
