Connecting our LGBTQ+ community

At HOPES, we welcome all members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community. We support the LGBTQ+ community by providing culturally competent healthcare, social services, and community outreach and education. Together, we can create a strong, cohesive LGBTQ+ network that connects people, solves problems, and builds a healthier Reno community.

LGBTQ+ Friendly Services

At HOPES, we provide judgment-free, culturally competent healthcare services for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, and queer individuals in our community. We believe that everyone should have access to quality healthcare in a safe and supportive environment.

We offer fast, free, confidential HIV and hepatitis C testing. Both tests involve a simple finger stick that tests for antibodies in the blood, and results are ready in 15-20 minutes.

Our Wellness Clinic offers integrated behavioral health counseling, including individual counseling, couples counseling, and substance use counseling.

Give OUT Day

HOPES is a proud ally of the LGBTQ+ community. Many staff and supporters identify as LGBTQ+. We connect our patients to the services and support they need, including onsite support groups, resources, medical care and of course, connection to community. We live by our values which include Kindness, Dignity, Inclusion, Creativity and Adaptability.

We are on a mission to provide inclusive, holistic, accessible healthcare, we can’t do it alone. We need your support. When you make an investment in HOPES, you’re really making an investment in the betterment our community as a whole. You are providing individualize care, hope and connectivity.

Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Barry Frank, he is matching every gift given for Give OUT Day, up to $25,000. That means every dollar you give today will be doubled and twice the impact.
