Over the last 5+ years, we’ve seen the menstrual and reproductive health space begin to shift with respect to trans & nonbinary inclusion. As a Franciscan Catholic Parish that welcomes and cares for everyone in need, we are so proud to be part of that change by adding our newest specialty bags to our Blessing Bag Outreach Program for those experiencing homelessness. Our newest specialty bags join alongside our “Just for Girls. Period.” by offering discreetly designed feminine hygiene products while simultaneously respecting the trans person. We feel more committed than ever to serving the needs of one of the largest growing segments of homelessness; those LGBTQ persons rejected by family and friends and forced to live on the streets. In very real and tangible ways that value, respect, and affirm the diversity of their experiences and identities, we continue to care. We listened, we heard, we acted and now, we love even more.
