Kandi Patterson brings years of professional and personal experience to the Peer Advocacy team at WORLD. Kandi is from Texas, where she was a volunteer and coordinator at a positive resource center, but has lived in the Bay Area since 2003. For much of that time, she worked for the city and county of San Francisco as a peer support specialist. She also attended SFCC, where she studied group facilitation.

Kandi started out at WORLD as a client, and was inspired by the positivity and inclusivity of a woman-run organization. She is a member of the trans community, and feels strongly that WORLD has much to offer women of transgender experience, including support and referrals. Kandi is happy to be part of an organization that adapts and grows, and excited at the opportunity to support her sisters in her role as Peer Advocate. She runs the Sister Circle Saturday support group for all self-identified trans women.
