We proudly serve the diverse LGBTQ+ commmunity ๐Ÿ’š

The free InReach App is designed for the diverse and intersectional LGBTQ+ community. We are proud to have users from a wide variety of sexual orientations, gender identities, races/ethnicities, immigration statuses, ages, and more.ย 

ย 

*Note: Following our safety-first approach, we do not require any personally identifiable information to use the InReach App. Users who choose to create a free InReach user account have the option to share demographic information via an anonymous online survey. All of this sensitive information is stored anonymously and not connected to any single individual user or user account.ย 

APP SERVICE AREA COVERAGE ๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ

The InReach App is available on web (desktop and mobile), and native iOS and Android. The confidential app currently lists affirming, verified services in all 50 U.S. states, D.C. and U.S. territories, Canada, and Mexico.

There are over 9,000 verified services listed on the free InReach App across North America, with new services being independently verified and added every day by trained volunteers.ย 

InReach App Features๐Ÿ“ฑ

Our vision is to ensure every LGBTQ+ person has on-demand access to safe resources via building a dynamic tech platform that everyone can contribute their knowledge to for free. ๐Ÿ’š

  • Open Source

    InReach is built for scale and local community input.

  • Vetted Resources Only

    Every service provider listed on InReach is independently vetted (and re-verified at least once every 6 months) to be affirming for the diverse LGBTQ+ community by trained volunteers.

  • Safety First

    We know online anonymity can be a life-or-death issue for LGBTQ+ people. Thatโ€™s why our app is designed to protect usersโ€™ confidentiality and safety online.

  • Localization (Translation)

    As an open-source platform, InReach uses crowdsourced translations. Real people verify (and edit as needed) our machine-generated translations to ensure accuracy, inclusivity and cultural competence.

  • Holistic

    InReach lists 15 categories of verified support, including trans focused services, legal help, safe housing, meal assistance, abortion care, mental health and medical care, translation and interpretation, community support, and more.

  • Personalize Your Search

    Users can easily filter out providers that require fees and specific documentation (e.g., photo ID, medical insurance, proof of age/income/residence, or a referral) to access.

  • Leave Ratings and Reviews

    Logged-in users can share public ratings (one to five stars) and reviews on all verified service providersโ€™ profile pages.

  • Suggest New Resources

    Logged-in users can suggest new LGBTQ+ resources for inclusion in the app to InReachโ€™s Resource Team.

  • Save and Share Resources (Coming Soon)

    Logged-in users can save and share their personalized resource list(s) via print/email.

  • Sorting Search Results (Coming Soon)

    Sort verified providers by LGBTQ+ community focus (e.g., sort verified providers by BIPOC and/or TGNC and/or immigrant providers first).

  • Service Provider Features (Coming Soon)

    Providers who register for a free user account and โ€œclaimโ€ their organizationโ€™s profile page will gain access to a suite of free tools to showcase their services on InReach.
