Updated automatically every 5 minutes

2023 saw TEP continue the growth we’ve seen over the last few years. Our staff of 10+ amazing folks, all of them a part of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, have grown more confident and comfortable with their roles, and have made a collective impact that would shock the folks who aren’t already following the work of our small-but-mighty team.

We’ve made a few updates to the language we use at TEP, to better reflect our community. We’ll share those below.

New Programs that we Added to Our Roster in 2023:

Lead Me to Safety Grant

In 2023, TEP created a grant for volunteer or staff members of the organization who were living in unsupportive states and needed to flee to safety. The grant provided $5,000 worth of funding to 2 volunteer members of our team. With this funding, our folks were able to relocate, safely to more affirming environments where they are more likely to thrive.

One of those recipients has since joined our team, full time and has been doing a terrific job of supporting our clients in crisis.
