Generations Aging with Pride

Mission

Generations Aging with Pride empowers older LGBTQ adults to live with pride and dignity by promoting, connecting and developing innovative programs and services that enhance belonging and support, eliminate discrimination, and honor the lives of older members of our community.

***

Generations Aging with Pride, a nonprofit organization, is offering important new opportunities to develop and test multigenerational solutions to the challenges facing LGBTQ midlife and older adults, building on the many strengths across the generations. Utilizing research findings from Caring and Aging with Pride and Aging with Pride, Generations Aging with Pride is assessing needs and designing trainings and services for LGBTQ people, their families and communities. The goal of this partnership is to develop and test the first evidence-based trainings for providers of care to LGBTQ older adults and their families. In addition, the organization is partnering with local organizations to create evidence-based cross generational support programming that will help reduce isolation of LGBTQ older adults and enhance their success as they age-in-community. This project is funded by the City of Seattle.
