SMTS was founded in 2013 by local trans women including current facilitator Kayla Goetzman. They lived in Rochester, MN and when they realized that the Twin Cities had the closest transgender support group, they decided to create their own support group centered in southeast Minnesota.
SMTS currently operates as a volunteer-led peer support group. We have host regular support group meetings. We also have a clothing bank that has many items for whoever may need them, all free of charge. Check out the Support Group tab for more info.
