Founded in San Francisco in 1998, Openhouse enables San Francisco Bay Area lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) seniors to overcome the unique challenges they face as they age by providing housing, direct services, and community programs. Openhouse works to reduce isolation and empower LGBT seniors to improve their health, well-being and economic security.
To further our mission, Openhouse:
Openhouse recognizes and affirms that LGBT older adults live at intersections of race, ethnicity, class, culture, HIV status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, spirituality, and ability. Openhouse is committed to creating a safe environment to encourage and support participants to share their diverse perspectives and identities to foster dynamic community engagement.
