Community Center for LGBT Older Adults & Housing Services

We are SAGE Puerto Rico, Advocacy & Services for LGBT Elders. We have daily support services for LGBT Older Adults at the LGBT SAGE Community Center in San Juan and in Toa Baja. We will be opening other Centers across the island very soon.

We have community based services and advocacy on behalf of the LGBT Older Adults (50+), retirees, and elders; we work collaboratively with other local organizations, in developing LGBT activities and in this endeavor. LGBT Elder Housing Units and Independent Living Sites are in the planning phase.

In addition, we provide brief mental health sessions impacting the mental health wellness of individuals, partners, and families. We utilize a wide array of techniques and philosophies to assist in decreasing stress, sadness, trauma, anxiety, and other mental health issues affecting the Puerto Rican LGBT Older Adult. These services are free.

PIPES – Programa Integral para un Envejecimiento Saludable. It is an 8-week program with creative arts, music-therapy, yoga, meditation and individual counseling. Free and open to all older adults. Groups begin every other month.
