SAGECAP (SAGE Caring and Preparing), launched in 2009 and supported by the Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Foundation, was designed to provide a safe, welcoming community that helps caregivers navigate their current and future needs: as they provide care for a loved one, SAGECAP cares for them, and in turn helps them prepare for the time in their life when they may need care.

In 2014, the Weinberg Foundation provided additional support for SAGE to replicate the SAGECAP program in Baltimore, Maryland as part of the Making Maryland the Best Place to Grow Old initiative. Our partnership with the LGBT Health Resource Center of Chase Brexton Health Care is designed to build a program that offers many of SAGECAP's core services, but meets the specific needs of caregivers in the Baltimore community. For more information about SAGECAP in Baltimore, please contact Alex Kent, SAGECAP Program Replication Coordinator, at 410-837-2050 x1120 or at email@example.com.
SAGECAP is made possible through the generous support of the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and the MetLife Foundation.
