New York’s First LGBTQ+-Friendly Elder Housing
One of the most important decisions we make as older people is where we’re going to live. For all older people, affordability is often a challenge. For older LGBTQ+ people, so is finding a place that’s welcoming—where we can feel free to be ourselves and be treated respectfully and compassionately. That’s why SAGE’s National LGBTQ+ Elder Housing Initiative is addressing these challenges on several fronts by:
- Building LGBTQ+-friendly housing in New York City
- Advocating nationally against housing discrimination
- Training eldercare providers to be LGBTQ+ culturally competent
- Educating you about your housing rights
- Helping builders across the U.S. replicate LGBTQ+-friendly housing
