TPAN began offering dedicated youth programming in 2010. Since that time we've developed a unique niche for connecting with those between the ages of 18-29 in the LGBTQ community. Our youth programs offer social and cultural outings, monthly peer-led groups, holistic health retreats, individual counseling, psychiatry, and a drop-in space that allows for safety, support, and conversation. Each and every service is free of charge.

Youth Programs

Are you a graduate of the EPIC program and looking to get connected to someone for help with access to medical care, housing, employment assistance, or other supportive concerns? If so, contact Jeff at (773) 989-9400 x271 

Participants who may be experiencing substance use issues and interested in further support will receive referrals to our program partners at Southwood Interventions and Haymarket Center. Please contact Jeff if you’re interested in our partnership with Southwood or Haymarket.


TEAM is TPAN’s treatment education program for HIV-positive individuals who want to learn more about managing their HIV care, HIV medications and talking to their doctor. 

Committed to Living (CTL) is TPAN’s ongoing ‘Lunch and Learn’ series for HIV-positive individuals who want to stay up-to-to date on the latest information on HIV treatment and health. 

TPAN has a number of support groups, one of them may be right for you. Oftentimes, we think we are struggling alone. Support groups help us see that there are others who may be dealing with similar situations and who, in turn, can help us get better. 

The Tea Room: TPAN's Youth Drop-In Center

The Tea Room

The Tea Room, TPAN's drop-in youth center, is a safe space for young adults to congregate and find help and community. The Tea Room is open Wednesdays and Thursdays 1-5pm. Here you will find a washer-dryer for your use, snacks, TV, video games, a computer, and easy access to services, including medical care and case management.

Anyone between the ages of 18-29 and a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or an ally is welcome, regardless of HIV-status, race, or gender.

All services at the Tea Room are free and open to the public.
