Save the date for the LGBTQ+ Elder Housing Services Virtual Symposium, co-hosted by Openhouse and SAGE, on Thursday, November 4th and Friday, November 5th. Clinicians, housing providers, LGBTQ+ and aging advocates, and service providers will come together to discuss the housing services formulas necessary to help our aging LGBTQ+ population! 

Secure, stable, and affordable housing is a necessary component of any aging experience, and every year a new class of LGBTQ+ older adults enter into senior-hood. However, housing for LGBTQ+ seniors is one of several barriers threatening their ability to age successfully. Often, developers and organizations address this issue by offering new housing facilities, centering LGBTQ+ senior placement. But housing is only one part of a multifaceted effort to provide LGBTQ+ older adults with the opportunity to thrive.

Healthy Aging Begins at Home: Program 

The two-day Openhouse + SAGE symposium event will include:

  • Panel discussions with established figures in the fight to address the housing crisis in the LGBTQ+ aging community
  • Conversations highlighting the challenges and best practices for social service provision: Speakers will underline a holistic approach in offering resources to allow LGBTQ+ seniors the opportunity to thrive by addressing the impact of systemic and interpersonal trauma, and accessing clinical support services.
