We Are Coming
The FitzLane Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides funding to underprivileged transgender youth in the Greater Tampa Bay Florida area for LGBTQIA+ specialized therapeutic services at the mental health provider of their choice.
Therapeutic services are of paramount importance to the mental and physical well-being of many of the individuals that make up the LGBTQIA+ community. These services can potentially help individuals navigate the trying process of finding and accepting themselves, coming out to their families and society, and dealing with many of the unfortunate negative interactions that come from outdated social norms and prejudices. Of all members of the community, the youth are most at risk, and most vulnerable to the underlying struggles that plague the LGBTQIA+ community as a whole.
Due to the nature of therapeutic services overall and the specialized nature of these services as it relates to the LGBTQIA+ community, it is not always an affordable or reasonable option for these at risk youth. The FitzLane Project will address this issue by facilitating more access to these services through providing financial support for these individuals most at risk to receive these vital services through a network of certified therapist/mental health counselors who share our vision.
