Tacoma Older LGBT (TOL), a pre-SAGE* Tacoma project

SAGE Olympia has been working with Tacoma area residents to support their efforts to create a Tacoma-area affiliate. As "Sister-Sage" communities, we have shared information and resources; staffed the recent Pride Festival booths in both Tacoma and Olympia; conducted GLBT elder service provider training; and, worked closely together to conduct the recent GLBT needs-assessment. Tacoma residents are working with SAGE USA to explore the path to becoming a formal SAGE affiliate. Until Tacoma becomes an official SAGE affiliate, our mutual "Sister-Sage" work will continue to promote wellness for GLBT elders through out the South Puget Sound region.  Click here for more information.
