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 judgement-free healthcare, social services, and community outreach and education. Together, we can create a strong, cohesive LGBTQ+ network that connects people, and builds a healthier Reno community.

LGBTQ+ Friendly Services

At HOPES, we provide judgment-free 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.

Our Gender and Sexual Health Care clinic helps assist patients and clients by providing them the resources they need most, wherever they are at in their journey. These are resources above and beyond normal care offered at HOPES. Some examples include prescription co-pays, hormone replacement therapy (only to patients 18+), voice coaching, group therapy/classes, chest binders, clothing, make-up, hair styling, hair removal/electrolysis and more.

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a daily pill or monthly injection that can reduce the risk of HIV infection. If you are at risk of HIV exposure, make an appointment to discuss if PrEP should be part of your health care routine. Change Point is currently scheduling new PrEP appointments.

We also offer Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP), medication which can prevent HIV infection if taken within 72 hours of a possible HIV exposure event. Call to speak with a team member for more information.

The Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) team at Northern Nevada HOPES specializes in the treatment of addiction and Substance Use Disorders (SUD). MAT is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. It is an effective, evidenced-based treatment option for individuals with SUD including alcohol and opioid use disorders.

Change Point offers chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis testing by appointment only. Call the clinic to schedule.
