HISTORY OF TRANS: THRIVE, which stands for Transgender Resource and Neighborhood Space (TRANS), and Transgender Health & Resource Initiative for Vital Empowerment (THRIVE) is the new incarnation of the transgender drop-in started by UCSF and transferred to Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center. TRANS: THRIVE was initially made possible by the continuation of a grant from the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). We are now funded by the San Francisco Department of Public Health AIDS Office. The T-LISH youth program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by way of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
