SHEBA (Sisters Helping Each Other Battle Aids) is a group of 20 African American male-to-female transgender women that meets biweekly for leadership development, health promotion activities, and social support. Leadership development methods include education and training on small group facilitation, HIV prevention outreach and advocacy training, communication skills, and self-confidence training.
Diverse & Resilient facilitates biweekly social and educational discussion groups including educational presentations and discussion questions to support health education and promotion.
In addition to group support, this project provides advocacy and support for individual transitions by assisting each SHEBA member to create self-empowerment goals regarding their health choices, their employment, and the transgender female community.
