Community Cares reaches out to isolated LGBTQ Elders

Community Cares Reaches Out to Isolated LGBTQ Elders

Due to coronavirus precautions, Community Cares volunteers will not be visiting their recipients until it is safe to do so again. But we continue phoning and talking with recipients throughout the crisis.

Are you LGBTQ, 55+, homebound or isolated? Are you disabled of any age? Senior Pride’s Community Cares Program reaches out to people in our community by providing trained volunteers who will visit once a week to play cards, read aloud, write letters or call once a week for a phone visit. Volunteers can also provide information on LGBTQI services and resources. There is no charge for this service. Contact us at 520-351-2724 or email. Referrals are welcome and encouraged!
