About SAGE Miami
SAGE Miami seeks to enhance the quality of life of LGBT elders through programs that gather the community, offer counseling and case management services, and provide SAGE-certified training in cultural sensitivity to those in organizations that care for LGBT elders.
Jewish Community Services of South Florida, Inc. (JCS) is a private, 501(c)(3) autonomous human services agency located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. JCS is a major provider of non-sectarian programs and services for all people whose lives are at risk: frail elders, LGBTQ elders and at-risk youth, unemployed, homeless, refugees, physically and developmentally challenged, families in crisis, substance abusers, child victims of neglect and abuse, delinquents, working poor, uninsured or underinsured. JCS serves Miami-Dade County residents/families in need of community resources in an effort to enrich their life experiences and concomitantly support the civic, social and economic well-being of our community.
LGBT seniors find themselves confronting traditional challenges of aging, while at the same time encountering issues particular to the LGBT community such as increased instances of isolation and loneliness, lack of family members , food insecurity, and fear of being “out” to caretakers at home or in facilities. JCS builds upon its existing linkages serving the elderly in Miami-Dade County to create new collaborative relationships with existing LBGT organizations in serving LGBT elders.
