The Senior Center is participating in the statewide LGBTQ+ Moveable Senior Center Initiative. This opportunity provides Senior Center personnel with LGBTQ+ inclusivity training, peer collaboration, and programming support to foster an LGBTQ+ inclusive Senior Center environment and improve access, engagement, and connection of LGBTQ+ community members to Senior Center resources.
Goals of the LGBTQ+ Moveable Senior Center are to:
Bring inclusivity training and practice to Connecticut Senior Centers.
Introduce the services and supports for healthy aging available through Senior Centers to LGBTQ+ older adults – a community that is sometimes reluctant to engage with social service providers.
Provide a cohesive and coordinated statewide calendar of LGBTQ+ Moveable Senior Center events and programs to the community.
