The New York State Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health & Human Services Network (The Network) is a coalition founded in 1994 and administered by The Center, consisting of 72 LGBT-specific and LGBT-supportive nonprofit organizations that provide care to LGBT New Yorkers and our families.

Network members support and learn from each other, help build capacity and increase their ability to foster a safer and more supportive state for all LGBT people. For example, recognizing that many transgender clients have varied life experiences—many of which involve a combination of racism, classism and trans- or homophobia—The Network works to improve the quality of resources and care that each organization can offer to this community.


Members of The New York State LGBT Health & Human Services Network serve all of New York State’s 62 counties—including upstate, downstate, rural and urban populations. Organizations are arranged according to the location of their main offices, but many also provide services in other boroughs/regions.
