Established in 2015 to Empower, inspire, and facilitate trust and equality for everyone regardless of gender assigned at birth. The organization serves primarily the transgender community but also supports and provides education for the entire LGBT community.

We have reached out as a resource to a number of colleges and universities to educate. we host meeting for allies and families so they can inform one another of any roadblocks to understanding as well as for the transgender individuals we serve.

We also create opportunities for our teen membership to fulfill volunteer hours they must perform in order to graduate high school.

There current board members have a variety of backgrounds and expertise. The organization works hard to make sure many different voices are represented on the board, including youth.

GET provides support group for transgender and gender questioning adults, teens, children, their family members and allies. The support groups are run by professional psychotherapists, either certified transgender care therapists or mental health counselors (3), and 2 group leaders recruited from LGBTQ community with more than 10 years of experience of running support groups with the respective population.


Additionally, The GET network has a variety of volunteers who also contribute their skills in support of the organizations mission.

Year ones progress indicators focused on membership with a goal of 100 members and that threshold was met. Year two has focused on retaining and growing membership, and introducing fundraisers to the schedule which is on pace to see a 50% increase.

To date, We have done some amazing things, even saved lives. We share our stories and we ease pain and we have had a shoestring of budget. With the growing pains of a young non-profit we seek capital to solidify and improve our infrastructure and operations.
