This Technical Assistance Guidance highlights effective strategies for integrating trans women into shelter, building on the knowledge that most shelter staff and allied professionals have already developed practice, familiarity, and skill in providing shelter services to women.

The primary focus of this paper is on women who have socially transitioned and are currently living the majority or all of the time as women. We recognize that many trans women are unable to present as female all of the time and even more trans-feminine people either do not wish to socially, medically, or legally transition or have genders that blend female and male.
