Our Projects

Covid 19 Help

With limited resources and non-traditional jobs due to the many barriers we face, many of us are part of the gig economy; and our community historically is hit first and the hardest, with a longer recovery time, when disaster strikes. 


Since the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen the continued struggles to meet our community's basic needs. Trans(forming) is raising funds to support those directly impacted by this ongoing pandemic. We have raised funding and supported over 20 individuals and their families by providing direct funding for rental assistance, food, utilities, transportation, and COVID-19 supplies. 


Prison Project

 Transmen, transmasc, intersex, gender non-conforming people of color, assigned female at birth (including those who ID as male/ man) and those who are questioning are often targeted by law enforcement. Many are misgendered, mistreated and have little access to transitional needs while incarcerated.


We connect with those in our local prisons, to provide commissary, support through letter writing, and help with name changes. We also provide support services after release, such as, finding housing, employment, health care, and SNAP benefits. 



Health Equity Project

Creating awareness and engagement involving sexual health/healthcare, increasing awareness and services for HIV+gender diverse people,

STD Prevention methods, and

de-stigmatizing HIV.

The Project also reduces barriers to wellness and addresses health disparities, by educating and informing our community and 

by training providers to be competent in providing trans-affirming care.

Trans(forming) House Fund

Provides emergency and short-term housing for members and partners of Trans(forming) who are faced with eviction, housing instability, and a range of barriers to accessing safe and permanent housing. The purpose of residing at Trans(forming) House is not only to provide members with safe and affirming housing, but to help them with setting and meeting goals, create and maintain a budget, and save. 

These are required, essential life skills that will help members long after they leave Trans(forming) House. 

We need housing now more than ever! Our community has been hit hard by the ongoing pandemic and are in need of one of life's basic necessities, housing.

Trans* Stopping Violence

Through our anti-violence project we address trans-phobia, and raise awareness around inter-personal violence within the trans community. We have made a concentrated effort of addressing the increasing violence, often fatal, against trans and gender non-confirming individuals by expanding our peer support groups, providing resources, and

providing safety plans and tips that we have found to be effective for Trans, Intersex, and Gender non-confirming individuals.

MALTHA Co-Founders

Metro Atlanta Lesbian and Trans Housing Alliance is based in the Metro Atlanta area. It is a multi-racial, multi-generational, sexual and gender minority alliance, working to build housing equity. Lesbian and Trans-led, we are committed to advocating for the unique needs of our constituents, which overlap greatly. We coalesce to galvanize into action, maximize our resources and exercise our power knowing that lesbian and Trans people are disproportionately represented among those experiencing housing-insecurity and homelessness. We are often not considered in other housing programs.


COVID-19 VaccineProject

Transforming is educating and encouraging transmen, transmasc, AFAB, gender non-conforming, and non-binary folk on the importance of vaccinating against COVID-19.  


We were awarded a 3rd grant, to continue the work of educating and informing the community about the effects of COVID.


The project is funded by the CDC(Center For Disease Control), in partnership with Community Catalyst Vaccine Equity Access Program (VEAP).
