Building LGBT Elder Housing: From Concept to Completion

June 2, 2016

Co-hosted by SAGE and Enterprise Community Partners, this panel of pioneers of LGBT inclusive housing projects explores successes and challenges of developing a range of models that support elders. LGBT elders don’t want to retreat into the periphery as they age – they want and need to be social and to engage with an intergenerational and diverse community. Given the diversity of needs and range of financial ability in LGBT elder communities, there is a clear necessity for the continued development of housing options for LGBT elders and a need for both non-profit and for-profit developers to work on housing options. Moderated by Serena Worthington, Director of National Field Initiatives, SAGE.
