SAGE Receives Historic City Contract
to Create the Country's First LGBT Senior Center
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA) announced today that Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) was awarded an Innovative Senior Center (ISC) contract to open the nation's first full-time center for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults. SAGE the country's oldest and largest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT older adults. The SAGE Center, slated to open in January 2012, will include program sites in all five New York City boroughs—bringing a comprehensive array of services and support to LGBT elders throughout the city.
In addition to the robust array of programs SAGE currently provides at the LGBT Community Center and SAGE Harlem, the new Center will offer hot meals, programs covering issues from health and wellness to workplace skills, comprehensive social services, a wide range of social activities, and much more.
"SAGE is honored to have this opportunity to strengthen the programs and services we offer to address the unique needs of LGBT older people in New York City," said Michael Adams, Executive Director of SAGE. "Opening The SAGE Center has been our dream for many years. We are thrilled to be part of a bold initiative that emphasizes innovation in aging services; SAGE is committed to building program models that can be replicated in New York City and nationwide."
Drawing on its 32 years of experience in designing programs in partnership with LGBT elders, SAGE plans to create vibrant programming for the growing population of LGBT older adults living in New York City. By partnering with community organizations in the five boroughs, The SAGE Center will extend LGBT-affirming services to LGBT older New Yorkers who do not use their local centers for fear of discrimination, and those who may not know of or be able to access SAGE's current services.
The SAGE Center is part of New York City's Innovative Senior Center program, a new initiative by Mayor Michael Bloomberg that is giving 10 of the city's leading aging organizations the opportunity to better serve their elder communities with creative, needs-based programming that will create models for the "senior center of the future." The SAGE Center is one of two citywide centers created to address the needs of historically underserved elder populations.
The city contract represents another historic government funding breakthrough for SAGE and LGBT older people. In January 2010, SAGE—in partnership with 10 aging and LGBT organizations nationwide—received a historic grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Administration on Aging to establish the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, the country's first and only technical assistance resource center aimed at improving the quality of services and supports offered to LGBT older adults.
