Celebrating 50,000 Calls

Since we launched in late 2014, Trans Lifeline’s Hotline has fielded calls from all 13 provinces and territories in Canada, all 50 states in the United States, and 61 other countries alloverthe world. in that time, we’ve added staff, increased our capacity to serve our community, and worked with Contact USA to ensure that we’re meeting the highest standards for a peer support line--and they’ve accredited us! We’ve grown a lot over the years, but one thing hasn’t changed: we believe in offering the most authentic and respectful peer support possible.

Microgrants Program Celebrates $100k in Disbursed Funds

As we welcome you to our new website, one that reflects the merging of two lifesaving projects into one exciting new vision, we would also like to welcome those who have not heard of our work! Microgrants is a project of Trans Lifeline, founded by and for the community. While our Hotline is working every day to support the emotional needs of the trans community, we are working to support the material needs that so often accompany them. Microgrants is the financial support arm of Trans Lifeline, where we are able to redistribute money to trans people who need it and offer encouragement, support, advocacy, and care in the most challenging times.

And one of the most common questions we get from people who work in crisis intervention and the general public, is why our answer is generally no. We will only call authorities in three circumstances: if a caller asks us to, if there is a credible threat to a third party, or to comply with laws regarding suspected child abuse and neglect.
