We’re all aging, and we want to feel safe when we look outward for some assistance. At Training to Serve, we’re committed to making a difference in how lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender older adults (LGBT) are supported and served as they age. Our respected training curriculum is how we accomplish this goal.
Thanks to our many supporters, Training to Serve is wrapping up another successful year educating the Minnesota senior services community about the unique issues confronting LGBT people as they age. To date, we have reached 4,000 professionals who provide aging services, helping create welcoming and respectful support for the growing population of Minnesota LGBT elders. Training to Serve also published and distributed the Twin Cities area’s first LGBT Aging Resource Guide for persons seeking LGBT–welcoming services for themselves, a loved one or a client.
We could not do our work without your financial support. We operate with a part-time executive director, a volunteer working board, and volunteer trainers. Your dollars directly support our training work on-site with aging providers and at conferences across Minnesota.
