Equal Access Regardless of Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, or Marital Status
Mercy House welcomes individuals who are heterosexual, bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and/or gender non-conforming of different races, classes, religions, ages, and backgrounds.
In providing equal access to our programs, Mercy House will:
- Determine a client’s eligibility for housing regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status, and will not discriminate against them because they do not conform to gender or sex stereotypes (i.e., because of their gender identity);
- Grant equal access to our programs or facilities consistent with their gender identity, and provide their family with equal access;
- Mercy House staff will not ask clients to provide anatomical information or documentary (like an ID), physical, or medical evidence of their gender identity;
- Take non-discriminatory steps when necessary and appropriate to address privacy concerns raised by any residents or program participants.
