As we all experience the new reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation is becoming more common. Our LGBT community, like our country, is in uncharted waters. But we know what we need to do because we’ve done it before: we organize ourselves as effectively and as lovingly as possible to respond to an unprecedented health crisis. Thank you for helping us promote our newest volunteer initiative, SAGEConnect.

SAGEConnect is a program designed to pull isolated or lonely LGBT older people tighter into our community and make sure they feel safe, loved, and visible despite having to stay indoors. SAGEConnect matches volunteers who can commit to calling their match at least once per week with older LGBT people who are interested in receiving a call.

Thank you again for your help and support rolling this program out. If you have any inquiries, please feel free to contact connect@sageusa.org.
