Community Cares

Are you isolated from your LGBTQI+ community?

Community Cares offers friendly visits and phone calls for LGBTQI+ older adults who are 55+, as well as LGBTQI+ people with disabilities regardless of age who are isolated, homebound or living in a care community (independent/assisted living and nursing/care homes).

Our mission is to end isolation in the LGBTQI+ community and provide information about welcoming Tucson resources and services.

Our volunteers are trained and have had a background check. There is no charge to participate in this program.

Referrals are encouraged and welcomed!

“This program has not only connected me to my visitor but to my LGBTQI+ community as well. Thank you.” ~ program participant
