In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Life is Work recognized multiple gaps in services/programming specific to transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) communities of color. Life Is Work has built partnerships with local housing Experts and management Co to address these gaps in services. Across the Chicagoland area. By linking Black and brown trans-identified individuals to much-needed resources and services.
We believe If Opportunities are given, an effective outcome is expected.
