SAGE Space for Older LGBTQ Adults
For many older LGBTQ adults who don’t have close relatives or next of kin, their “chosen families” provide the emotional and physical support that protects them from isolation.
These friendships become the care networks that form community. However, budget cuts ushered in by the pandemic have threatened the agencies that support these networks, leaving an already vulnerable population in an even riskier position.
To respond to the growing and urgent health-related needs of
older LGBTQ adults during the coronavirus pandemic, SAGE Metro Detroit has launched a food delivery service and an online virtual meeting place. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 734.681.0854.
