LGBT Helping Hands 12/31/09-Women's Transitional Care Services (Lawrence, KS)

WTCS recognizes the additional barriers lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) survivors face in finding support and resources. LGBT survivors often confront skepticism that partner abuse occurs in their relationships, not only within the queer community, but also within some domestic violence agencies. Because it is so hard for LGBT folks to find shelters that open their services to queer survivors, and because many domestic violence agencies are still struggling to challenge their own homophobia and heterosexism, WTCS is honored to offer support to LGBT survivors outside of our regular service area.

Some services WTCS offers to lesbian, bisexual, and trans women survivors:

* LGBT Community Resource Packets
* One-on-One Peer Counseling
* Weekly Community Support Group
* Community Education
* Safe Shelter
