The Clara Foundation and Phluid Foundation are matching all gifts to RECLAIM for Give to the Max Day up to $17,500! Help us MAX out our match!

RECLAIM's mission is to increase access to mental health care so queer and trans youth may reclaim their lives from oppression in all its forms. RECLAIM is one of the only resources in Minnesota where queer and trans youth ages 12-25 can get financially accessible, specialized mental health care. We provide individual, family, group, and couples counseling to folks who are seeking support with identity development as it relates to sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression. We support young people in building resilience as they navigate mulitple biases and oppressions that can impact their wellbeing. Beyond therapy, RECLAIM provides community trainings, education, and outreach to local partners to increase their competency in working with queer and trans folks.

This work is supported by incredible contributions from the community. We offer sliding scale, equity-based pricing for services to ensure that youth get the support they need.

We currently hold 80-90 sessions with clients weekly.

RECLAIM’s vision is that all queer and trans youth enjoy a thriving mental health foundation to live liberated, authentic lives in community. RECLAIM aims to bring mental health care directly to the most vulnerable queer and trans youth where and when they need it, reducing barriers related to finances, transportation, scheduling, as well as cultural preferences for relating.

Participating youth and families say,

“My son has, for the first time, connected with his therapist in an authentic way and this means he feels safe and able to talk about the tough things that other therapists never heard from him.”

“I never felt scared or fearful to bring up anything at my RECLAIM sessions. I had agency, autonomy, and confidence to say what I needed to say, explore what topics were most important to me, and show up authentically.”

The impact of your gift:

  • $1000 provides an uninsured youth with a month of weekly therapy for a month, along with the weekly caring accompaniment we provide to all clients.
  • $200 covers the cost of an individual therapy session
  • $50 supports a youth's participation in one of our weekly therapy groups

This year, our goal of $35,000 is powered by $17,500 in matching gifts! The Clara Foundation is matching up to $15,000 in donations, and the Phluid Foundation with support from the Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation is matching up to $2,500 in donations.

Our current services:

Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy: RECLAIM offers therapy to youth and/or their families to support identity development and to address other mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and pervasive trauma. We offer an equity-based sliding scale for all services, and both in-person and virtual therapy is available. 

Gender Exploration Groups: These groups are designed to support identity development, community connection, and improved wellbeing. Groups focus on the influence socialization has on identity, an exploration of each person’s core self, and generating healthy relationships. These groups focus on youth ages 12-17. 

RECLAIM's BIPOC Group: A support group for individuals ages 18-25 who identify as LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color). The purpose of the group is to gather and build community; process and explore intersecting identities and experiences, culture, and heritage; and commit to personal and collective healing. In this group we have an opportunity for members to seek, learn, share, and affirm connections to themselves and our communities while recognizing the distinct history of BIPOC people and unlearning dominant narratives.

Parent & Caregiver Groups: These are our newest groups designed for supportive parents, caregivers, and family members of queer and trans youth. These groups help caregivers understand and support their child's development, facilitate community connections, and ask questions and get information.

Training & Consultation: RECLAIM offers both training and on-going consultation to organizations that are interested in improving their ability to work effectively around experiences of sexual orientation and gender identity. We can provide on-going clinical consultation (often bi-weekly or monthly) to organizations to improve their quality of care for queer and trans consumers.
