Dear RECLAIM Family,

We are pleased to be reaching out to our community to share news about open positions at RECLAIM!

So much changed in 2020 for our organization, and 2021 has brought new opportunities and optimism. Since last July, RECLAIM has been led by an Interim Executive Director, Melissa Martinez-Sones, and Melissa is committed to leading the organization through the hire of a permanent Executive Director.

RECLAIM has also hired a Clinical Director, Caitlin Baldwin, who has brought a wealth of experience and expertise to RECLAIM’s clinical operations. The organization has been energized by Caitlin’s clinical skills and leadership since she joined the staff this January.

This transition, interim, and clinical leadership has allowed the organization to continue to implement our multi-year strategic plan and nimbly navigate toward a place of organizational health and stability. We are so excited about the future of RECLAIM!

As we thaw out from Covid this spring and summer, RECLAIM is in an excellent position to expand our team and serve more youth, and we hope that you will share the open positions with your personal and professional networks. Our Board and staff are excited about the future of the organization and the opportunity to provide critical services to our community of young people and all the people that care about them.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or for more information!

In partnership and solidarity,

Melissa Martinez-Sones
Interim Executive Director



RECLAIM works to increase access to mental health support so that queer and trans youth may reclaim their lives from oppression in all its forms. RECLAIM partners with youth ages 13 – 25 who are marginalized because of their gender identity, gender expression and/or sexual orientation. In addition to providing excellent care for youth, our vision is to change the landscape of access to care for queer and trans youth. We do this through deep practitioner development, training, education and outreach, and community partnerships at the intersection of gender and racial justice. We currently serve about 60% youth of color and 90% transgender youth, the majority from the Twin Cities metro area. Now in our 10th year, RECLAIM is growing in response to the need in the communities we serve.

RECLAIM encourages applications from candidates who reflect the communities we serve – Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Queer and Trans individuals. We are an equal opportunity employer. It is our policy not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, creed, sex, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, age, disability, status with regard to public assistance, and membership or activity in a local human rights organization.
