To help people of transgender experience reach their full potential as they transition from homelessness to independent living.


Princess Janae Place envisions an inclusive New York where transgender individuals prosper in secure, self-determined lives, empowered by a supportive community and access to essential resources.

How We
Do It

  • Stable Housing: We have an impressive success rate in transitioning members from homelessness to permanent, supportive housing. This stable foundation allows them to focus on the next steps in their journey.

  • Holistic Wellness: We go beyond shelter, providing a safe, gender-affirming environment with access to critical support services. This includes referrals for healthcare, mental health counseling, and educational & vocational opportunities. Our members are empowered to address their physical and mental well-being while developing the skills they need to achieve their goals. 

  • Empowerment & Self-Sufficiency: We support self-sufficiency by connecting members with healthcare and education services, mental health counseling, and training related to HIV prevention & home testing, as well as GED Prep, we equip them with the tools to achieve financial independence and build a secure future.

  • Community & Belonging: Princess Janae Place provides a strong sense of community. Through support groups, workshops, and social events, members build a network of peers who offer understanding, encouragement, and a sense of belonging. This supportive environment is crucial for mental and emotional well-being.

  • Gender Affirmation: We recognize the importance of gender affirmation in a person's overall well-being. We offer referrals to medical professionals specializing in transgender health care, including gender-affirming surgery.
