of the Cape Fear Coast’s mission is to bring our LGBTQ+ elders together by organizing social gatherings and networking with existing service/advocacy programs to build support and community for each other.
SAGE Night Out is held by SAGE Wilmington and invites the older population of Wilmington, NC to gather and build community! This is specifically tailored to the LGBTQ+ community, but allies are welcome as well. These gatherings are every third Wednesday of the month, from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. We hope to see you there!
For resources dealing with the elderly population and Alzheimers disease as well as resources to try and prevent this disease, SAGE Wilmington has partnered with Alzheimers NC to increase competency and provide local solutions or resources.
Find any new updates within SAGE Wilmington at this site. We are now on a program named Meetup, to try and promote events as much as possible. Feel free to follow us on there!
HERO is a local organization standing for HIV + Elders Regional Outreach. It was an agency formed in early 2015. 70% of those living with HIV/AIDS are over the age of 50, meaning that this is a big topic for the elderly community. Check out this page for more information. Meetings are on pause at the moment due to COVID-19. If needed, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This website provides more information on SAGE USA, the national organization that serves the elderly LGBTQ+ community.
