LGBTQ+ Health Program

LGBTQ+ Health Program


Jefferson's LGBTQ+ program is all about providing help for those in our region, whether that's for members of the community who need assistance, or for allies and advocates who want to learn more when it comes to safety and care.

One of the key tools to this is accessing a variety of valuable resources that provide vital information when it comes to things like LGBTQ+ rights, community wellness and so much more.

These resources are guides for a better understanding of what can and should be expected when it comes to receiving LGBTQ+ care.
