LGBT Elder Friendly Business Certification

Providing a resource for LGBT elders, their families and caregivers to receive safe referrals to community resources.

LGBT Elders are five times less likely to access much needed support and services for fear of abuse and discrimination. In response to the need for LGBT elders to have access to safe and LGBT friendly resources, ElderSource Institute is offering organizations the opportunity to become certified as LGBT Elder Friendly Businesses. Certified businesses will serve as direct referral sources by the ElderSource Helpline to LGBT elders, their families and caregivers.
