SERVICES & ADVOCACY FOR GLBT ELDERS (SAGE)
is the country’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults.
Our mission is to lead in addressing issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) aging.
SAGE OFFERS INNOVATIVE SERVICES AND PROGRAMS TO LGBT OLDER PEOPLE NATIONWIDE—THROUGHOUT NEW YORK CITY AND THROUGH OUR NATIONAL AFFILIATE PROGRAM, SAGENET.
From arts and culture, to health and wellness, and much more, SAGE’s innovative services and programs support thousands of LGBT older people in communities around the country. Additionally, SAGE’s leading programs—such as SAGEWorks, our employment program for LGBT older people—are often expanded into various sites around the country.
SAGE ADVOCATES AT THE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL FOR PUBLIC POLICIES THAT WILL IMPROVE ECONOMIC SECURITY, COMMUNITY SUPPORT, AND HEALTH AND WELLNESS AMONG A GROWING POPULATION OF LGBT OLDER PEOPLE.
In Washington, DC, our federal program ensures that policymakers in Congress and the administration support LGBT older adults in all the relevant policy areas.
Additionally, SAGE works with local advocates around the country to develop their local and state policy agendas—and to make them a reality.
