    SAGE Raleigh
    Senior Housing Initiative

    SAGE's Les Geller will be joining us to discuss the Senior Housing Initiative's creation, current stage, and the future direction on the project.

    The vision of the Senior Housing Initiative is to advocate for LGBT Seniors in Raleigh, North Carolina to have a safe, respected, and welcoming place to live in their golden years.

    Their mission is to provide education and promote awareness of the special needs of LGBT Seniors to local government, nonprofit, and for-profit entities in the housing industry. Options include the construction of new facilities, the purchase and conversion of existing buildings, and the education and training of administration, staff, and residents within new and existing senior living facilities so that they can become welcoming and safe environments. Efforts will include looking into the feasibility of affordable rental, market rate rental, and for-purchase housing.

    Please come and learn how as an Ally we can support SAGE and their mission!

    Note: Light refreshment will be provided.
