Our newest Project in Panama; a trans safe house and
transitional living program Casa de la Esperanza

TransMentors International is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 which provides aid, support and assistance to trans- and  nonbinary-identified individuals.

We are committed to the health and well-being of all members of our diverse community. Accordingly, we dedicate ourselves to providing an array of information services, educational materials, advocacy training, as well as personal assistance with safe housing, health, faith, resource referrals, emergency assistance and more.

We pledge compassionate support and passionate advocacy on behalf of trans- and non-binary identified persons in their journeys toward health of body and mind and in their pursuit of personal freedom, including the freedom to alter their bodies and change their gender roles.

Tips For Finding a Mentor

A Mentor is different than a friend. A Mentor is someone who has already been through and past an experience, and is willing to be a strong, responsible advisor to help you clarify and reach your own goals.

A Mentor, most often older, is someone who you look up to, and to whom you are accountable. They will listen to you, and will not be afraid to give you honest feedback. A Mentor will guide you into making the right choices for yourself in your transition journey. They are to be your role-model, and will be someone you can learn to fully trust.

A good Mentor will inspire you, guide you, and will expect you to give your best efforts into becoming the person you want to be.
