VCU Social Work students are pulling together information about inclusive facilities for older LGBT adults in Richmond and surrounding counties.
More information below:
If you identify as a gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered person, 50 years of age or older, and reside in either Richmond, Virginia or one of its surrounding counties, you may be eligible to participate in this quick needs assessment on programs, services, and facilities available to older adults.
