From Finnigan Jones – Executive Director
Upon the advice of our medical consultant, due to the Corona virus and because TCI serves a very large and diverse segment of the population, as of today all Texas group meetings will be suspended per CDC guidelines. Our board of directors will revisit where the situation is the first half of April. This is not what we wanted to do but we would not be good stewards to the community we serve if we did not.
We want to stress that we have had no reports of anyone who attends our groups contracting the corona virus. We are simply taking the precautions needed to ensure everyone’s safety and health.
Please remember that we are still here to support you by email, phone call or messenger. We will stay in contact with all of our TCI Directors and our group members.
Please check in on each other.

We set up and facilitate support group meetings in key cities. All of the leadership for the groups comes from community members who are trained and pass on the knowledge and experience they received as community members. Every group is set up with separate facilitators for trans/gender diverse; spouses/partners; and parents/family members with a facilitator for each group. And youth and young adult support for the groups that need that. These groups are able to meet in their own separate and safe space to share and talk about specific issues they need to share. We work with mental health professionals to offer the most comprehensive help possible.
We also offer education to the community and work as community partners with other organizations. We have helped organize and have participated in several panel discussions and workshops around the DFW area over the years. We present workshops and presentations at key conferences around the United States about the importance of family and community support.
