Making a difference in the lives of LGBTQ+ elders
Volunteer at a SAGE Center in NYC
Volunteers are the backbone of SAGE Centers. We are grateful for all they do to enrich the lives of LGBTQ+ older people.
Because of SAGE, I've gotten my B.A. in English and Creative Writing, finished my second novel, started my Master’s, and had my stories published. It has provided me with great opportunities. Without SAGE, I would have floundered and been washed away.
Someone brought me to SAGE during a very hard time in my life, when my father was ill and dying. SAGE helped me out in many, many ways; they even found me a psychiatrist and therapist. Everyone is very friendly and helpful here.
SAGE means I have a place and a space. If we didn’t have SAGE, I’d be at home, watching TV—boring! But here I have friends. I can do activities. SAGE is a wonderful place!
