• Eliminating homelessness and hunger – A One Stop Shop Model

Most people by now have heard about the Catlin Jenner story in the media; a former American athlete who won an Olympic Medal in 1976, and is also known as a reality TV-show stars on “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s.” Jenner recently publicly disclosed her story as a Transgender woman. Transgender can be defined as an umbrella term for people whose gender identity or expression is different from those typically associated with the sex assigned to them at birth (e.g. the sex listed on their birth certificate). In Jenner’s case, he is currently a man (the sex assigned to him at birth), but feels and is a woman (and vice versa). Jenner seems to have the social support and the means to go through with this change. Unfortunately, not everyone is as fortunate to have this opportunity.
