1. Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to be a part of this very important needs assessment for the Missouri Transgender community. The purpose of this assessment survey is to help TransHaven and other allied organizations determine critical needs for the Trans Communities of Missouri.

TransHaven provides trans-advocacy for the entire state of Missouri along with Community representation currently in St. Louis and Columbia and expanding in the future. We seek to help the Trans Community with a focus on those issues as determined by our constituency.

Results of this survey will be used to help TransHaven and other Missouri-based organizations collect information about the diverse needs of the Trans Communities in Missouri. These answers will help guide future policies, programming, educational focuses, outreach and support decisions.

For the purpose of this survey LGBTQIA is defined as Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, and ally. In this survey transgender is often abbreviated as trans.
