The SAGE Harlem Center is dedicated to creating a safe haven for LGBT older people in Harlem, East Harlem and the Bronx and connecting them to services in their community. Here are a few highlights of our work.

SAGE Harlem was established in 2004, strengthening SAGE’s responsiveness to communities of color by ensuring that LGBT elders in Harlem, East Harlem and the Bronx can benefit from culturally and linguistically appropriate services. SAGE Harlem is a Naturally Occuring Retirement Community (NORC), meaning it provides programs and services to residents right where they live—personifying the idea of "aging in place." Located in the historic former Theresa Hotel, SAGE Harlem offers bilingual information, referrals, services, programming, educational presentations and social activities for older LGBT residents in the community, and partners with local social services providers to expand access for LGBT consumers and sensitivity to their issues. In 2014, SAGE Harlem was renamed SAGE Center Harlem as part of a new initiative establishing SAGE Centers across New York City.
