LGBTQ Programs

No matter how you identify, our LGBTQ programs are designed to create a space for connection for LGBTQ older adults and adults with disabilities. Through specialized wellness programs, community events, and peer support groups, our programs can help you navigate complex challenges and continue to live boldly while connecting with a community of peers.

DC Center

The DC Center provides social and educational opportunities for LGBTQ Seniors, including weekly conversation groups, monthly lunches with programmatic elements, outings, and other community-building opportunities to create a safe space for DC's LGBTQ Older Adults.
