Review for Transgender Resource Center, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My "Second Life" (a Virtual World) Avatar Name is Ja Cuddihy and I'm presently a Volunteer with the Transgender Resource Center (TRC). I first came across the TRC on Second Life in November 2006 (with the TRC originally having been set up by Jani Myriam). Having this facility to discuss and deal with my Transgender issues at such time was of a great benefit and help to me personally. It still continues to be. In time, I was privileged to become a Volunteer with this wonderful Organisation and this allows me to give back to an extent the help and assistance which I previously received when I needed it. At the TRC we attempt to assist those with Transgender issues by affording to them Resources and a Facility where they can discuss such Transgender issues as are of particular concern to them. Indeed, non-transgendered persons who have a genuine interest in Transgender issues are also welcome at the TRC.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the manner in which it continues to evolve with an ever increasing membership and the changes which are rapidly being made to adapt effectively to this

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not have drastically changed anything, as it has been a huge but enjoyable learning curve for all involved. The TRC is now moving to a new strata and future as a Non Profit Org

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the differences amongst so many people who have a common bond in being transgendered and how learning from this has enriched me personally

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have to say quite a varied bunch (knowing them as a fellow Volunteer!) but at the same time an interactive and intelligent gang to work with!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

set up a Transgender Resource Center (TRC) at every street corner worldwide, virtual or otherwise!

Ways to make it better...

a facility like the TRC had been there many years back when I first began to seriously experience and question my Transgender issues

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

as it continues to evolve, to change and adapt to this and also to ensure to keep and recruit Volunteers who wil be actively engaged in furthering and bettering the TRC

One thing I'd also say is that...

for anyone who suspects that they may have Transgender issues, they should consider visiting the TRC to see if it is indeed a place where similar people can be found. I did and it is!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Volunteer & I continue to be involved as a Volunteer in assisting with the running and administration of the TRC.
