New Resource for LGBT Seniors
There are an estimated 68,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) adults, aged 65 and up, currently living in Michigan. In 2017, the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan (AAAWM) started working on a Michigan LGBT & Aging Initiative, a two-year grant through the Michigan Health Endowment Fund that will improve care for LGBT older adults and to help reduce social isolation. As part of this initiative, AAAWM created a resource guide of organizations who serve all people with dignity and respect, including LGBT older adults. The FHCWM is a part of this guide. You can access and download a copy of the guide here.
Luncheon & Workshop Series
Thank you for helping the FHCWM successfully honor the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act! John Relman, Managing Partner of Relman, Dane & Colfax, gave a powerful luncheon keynote presentation. Additionally, Marcel 'Fable' Price, Poet Laureate of Grand Rapids Michigan, performed an amazing spoken word poem on fair housing! Click here for available handout materials.
