What we're about ...
SAGE New Orleans - NOAGE, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was created from a steering committee of concerned residents and older adult service providers to address the challenges facing LGBT older adults in the New Orleans area.
LGBT older adults often face discrimination when seeking medical treatment, have a higher rate of poverty, are sometimes isolated after the loss of a significant other, and often feel the need to go back into the closet when living in a long-term care facility.
The unique challenges faced by LGBT older adults require a unique response. SAGE New Orleans hosts socialization/educational events for LGBT older adults, and works to increase the cultural competency of providers through trainings and workshops.

As advocates on behalf of the LGBT older adult community, SAGE New Orleans is committed to ensuring that all LGBT older adults can live their best lives with the dignity, respect, and good health that they deserve.
