SAGE Welcomes Priscilla Maysonet as Director of SAGE Centers

Maysonet Leads SAGE Programs at Innovative Senior Centers in Five Sites across New York City

[NEW YORK, NY] SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) has welcomed Priscilla Maysonet, MPA, as its Director of SAGE Centers in New York City.  

“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.

Maysonet leads a newly expanded network of SAGE Centers that was bolstered by a generous grant of $1.2 million dollars from the New York City Council in 2014. This grant funded the opening of a new SAGE Center in the Bronx and an expanded Center in Harlem, as well as new community partnerships with GRIOT Circle in Brooklyn, and the Staten Island Pride Center, where services for older adults have been significantly expanded.
