SAGE Atlanta (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) serves to enrich the lives of the GLBT senior community. We believe this can be accomplished by sponsoring social alternatives to provide personal interaction, offering educational opportunities to deal with the special needs of aging, and promoting contact with the isolated and homebound persons of our community.
SAGE is also an advocate for the concerns and needs of the senior GLBT community at large, providing referral information of community resources and promoting inter-generational communication in the GLBT community.
SAGE Atlanta is working to improve the overall quality of life of LGBT seniors; to support and advocate for the rights of LGBT seniors; to foster a greater understanding of aging in all communities; and to promote positive images of LGBT life in the later years. SAGE Atlanta is a member of the SAGE USA affiliate network. We are committed to providing service, advocacy, and raising community awareness of issues concerning LGBT seniors.
SAGE Atlanta’s home-base of operations is The Phillip Rush Center. A critical goal is to build and connect an expansive range of community partners to address the following key needs of LGBT seniors/elders.
- Access to quality and non-biased healthcare and support services for seniors:
- Advocacy for LGBT elder rights and nondiscrimination practices
- Combating social isolation and promoting a positive aging image
- Access to educational resources regarding the needs of LGBT seniors/elders
We warmly invite you to join us as we serve each other and our community.
