OutCare - Finding Care that Works for You.

At Damien Center, we provide compassionate, equitable, care to anyone in the community. In those rare moments where we can not provide medical care you require, we are proud to partner with OutCare to offer access to their Affirming Care Directory and can help you find an affirming doctor in your area.

OutCare was founded in 2015 by Dr. Dustin Nowaskie and his husband Jordan after they noticed a common theme in the LGBTQ+ community that people were forgoing medical care due to fear of judgement from doctors. The main mission of OutCare is to link LGBTQ+ individuals to affirming care in their area.
