What we're about ...
NOAGE, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was created from a steering committee of concerned residents and older adult service providers to address the challenges facing LGBTQ+ older adults in the New Orleans area.
LGBTQ+ older adults often face discrimination when seeking medical treatment, have a higher rate of poverty, are sometimes isolated after the loss of a significant other, and often feel the need to go back into the closet when living in a long-term care facility.
The unique challenges faced by LGBTQ+ older adults require a unique response. NOAGE hosts socialization/educational events for LGBTQ+ older adults, and works to increase the cultural competency of providers through trainings and workshops. To schedule a training, click HERE to contact us by email.
As advocates on behalf of the LGBTQ+ older adult community, NOAGE is committed to ensuring that all LGBTQ+ older adults can live their best lives with the dignity, respect, and good health that they deserve.
