Support GRIOT Circle on Thursday, April 19th as we support
LGBTQ elders that are 
"Aging with Pride"

                                                           Be the difference!!!

Your contribution to GRIOT Circle will help us provide a safe space and a myriad of programs for our members to age with pride and dignity within our communities.

       Help us reach our goal of $7,500!    

You can make a difference in the lives of elders as they
age with pride

 

 


Your support will sustain us, especially in this current political climate when vital programs, services, and rights for the LGBTQ community are threatened. AARP recently 
released a report with statistics that are alarming
.

The AARP survey notes that Black and Latino LGBT adults report the greatest concerns about future family support, social supports, and discrimination.
The survey also found that half (52%) of LGBT adults said they fear discrimination in health care as they age.
At GRIOT we know these challenges to be true as we work daily with  LGBTQ elders of color.
 
                                     
                                         
GRIOT addresses this need by offering
Leadership Development, AdvocacyVolunteer Opportunities,
 Case Management and Nutritional programs to LGBTQ elders of color. 




"I have learned to become an advocate at GRIOT Circle through my visibility. By co-hosting socials for transgender older adults at GRIOT, I have learned how to advocate for and affirm the identities of my community"- Renata



Your donation supports:

  • Motivating health and wellness programs that include ZumbaTai Chi, and meditation classes.
  • Elder driven women’s and the HIV older adult men’s group that sustains and empowers elders to live full lives.
  • Fun and educational outings that affirm and honor the cultures and identities of our elders.
  • The Buddy - 2 - Buddy Caregiving Program is designed to match LGBTQ older adults with others of mutual interest which helps reduce isolation and promotes a positive outlook on life and aging.
  • Advocacy and leadership development that lifts the voices and visibility of LGBTQ elders of color.



                         

             Help us meet our goal of $7,500 and make a difference for our elders on Give Out Day!
