With your donations, HIM is able to continue developing and expanding our health-based programming to serve our communities and help them build healthy lives together.
Why Donate to HIM?
HIM was founded in 2009 by a group of gay men as a grassroots initiative to fight against inequalities in the healthcare system and advocate for the health needs of GBT2Q communities. Since then, HIM has been on the forefront of developing, supporting and promoting programs that strengthens the health and wellbeing of our communities.
As community organization lead by peers from the communities we serve, we are able to bridge between the needs of our communities and resources provided by local, provincial and federal health institutions, while creating a space that is safe, engaging, empowering and stigma-free for our communities. And today, thousands of community members turn to HIM to find the information, services and support they need to make informed decisions about their own health.
But there’s much more progress to be made to address the inequalities in healthcare, and your support helps HIM continue to advocate for our communities’ health and wellbeing and allows us to innovate new programming that centres around the most vulnerable populations among us.
