“We’re thrilled that Priscilla has joined our growing team at SAGE,” said Michael Adams, Executive Director of SAGE. “With more than 100,000 LGBT older people living in New York City—many of whom live in poverty and isolation—our SAGE Centers are more important than ever. Priscilla’s leadership and experience will help us expand the services we offer and the number of people we reach. She’s a tremendous asset to SAGE.”
The first SAGE Center opened in Midtown Manhattan in 2013. It was the nation’s first full-time LGBT inclusive Senior Center. Today, all five SAGE Centers offer health and wellness programs, case assistance, social services, education, and social activities. Some locations also offer low-cost daily meals.
