PDX Black Trans Women Mutual Aid Fund- is a grass-roots activist fund in Miami that provides urgent financial assistance and housing to Black Trans Women facing extreme housing and discrimination.

Most landlords refuse from renting to Black Trans Women, and trans women of color are being harassed and violently attacked.  


Currently, the goal of this cause is to raise 500k in donations to create Trans-based communities in Miami - that provide Homeless Black Trans Women with housing- financial assistance and the opportunity to strive in a Trans community that offers acceptance and love for all Trans Women of Color.


This first step represents the rollout of 5- 10 Apartments that are purchased / lease from your donations to house Homeless Black Trans Women and as more donation comes in this Housing Model will be expanded to other areas in Miami. 



'' Since 2015, I began to connect with the trans community here in Miami by offering rooms in my home for trans folks through Airbnb Free of charge; and I realized the need for housing in the Trans Community is an epidemic with lots of Trans Women facing Human Rights being Violations; as landlords and others with the community discriminate, and sometimes impose injustice on us Trans Folks. ''

As for myself, I have been accommodating homeless trans women in my homes long before I made this Go Fund Me; However, the epidemic of homelessness among Black Trans Women is so huge that I alone can't finance it. As such, I need your help as the need is far greater than what I can provide personal and so I'm reaching out to all folks to help me with gain enough resources to lease or buy apartments in around Miami to house the many homeless trans women in need.

As I have already begun the journey in doing so and have provided housing for a few Trans Women via my Airbnb accommodations, I ask you all of you to consider making a donation and support my cause as I venture on into opening up more homes for trans women and expanding the model to other parts of the U.S where the need is also greatest.

Unfortunately, since April 2020, my personal funds ran out as my business is suffering from the COVID-19 epidemic and at a time where the need for safe housing in the trans community - the need for homeless trans folks is greatest. Because of such demand couple with the COVID epidemic, my business and I aren't able to provide the necessary resources to create more homes for trans women out of pocket. or business profits.

In essence, the longer-term objective is to use your donations to purchase and/or lease more properties to house an additional 100 trans women in by the end of the year and I'm relying on you to help me and my team make it a reality. At the moment, my initial goal is simple to expand housing to 10 trans women in 2 homes that I will be acquiring through leasing or buying. and then scale from there - It all depends on how this fundraising goes.

I have come to realize and learn that there is a harsh reality imposed on Trans Women of Color and this has made me a better human being and put my life on the path to save them all. Our strength as Trans Women of Color lies not in our struggles; it is how we survive the injustice, discrimination, reject, inequality coupled with violations of our human right to live free from hate and oppression. In the face of adversity, we stand strong even when facing oppression. While undertaking this social justice work - I have met and shared my experiences with them; cried with them, share their pain and suffer with them; because as a Trans woman myself, I realized this: while the rest of the world wants us not to exist, we are here, we have always been here, and we’re not going anywhere. So all of us people have to work to change humanity and campaign for better laws and policies that protect the rights and dignity of us Trans Women of Color.


Our goal is and always will be to establish permanent housing for Trans people. However, the need to help Trans Women of color is the greatest. As 90 percent of Black Trans Women experience housing insecurity, homelessness, discrimination, and violation of their human rights. Because of this Black Trans women are particularly more venerable and experience chronic homelessness on a more severe scale. To ensure that this never happens the Homeless Black Trans Women Fund Miami is dedicated to providing all wraparound services necessary to Trans Women for them to feel safe, protected and provide housing with wellness, career and educational programs that allow Trans of Women of color to achieve their dreams in safe communities and homes.

Please bear in mind that this cause depends on your donation to get rolling - and it's really crucial that you consider supporting it for the coming months as the girls being house will need resources to help them combat the effects of being homeless and long- term financial assistance to help them gain independence.
