SAGE Maine is a member-driven organization incorporated in Maine. We are dedicated to improving the lives of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender older adults.
SAGE is a national organization that offers supportive services and consumer resources for LGBT older adults and their caregivers, advocates for public policy changes that address the needs of LGBT older people, and provides training for aging providers and LGBT organizations, largely through its National Resource Center on LGBT Aging. SAGE has offices in New York City, Washington, DC and Chicago (www.sageusa.org).
The mission of SAGE is to take the lead in addressing issues related to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) aging. In partnership with its affiliate chapters and allies, SAGE works to achieve a high quality of life for LGBT older adults, supports and advocates for their rights, fosters a greater understanding of aging in all communities, and promotes positive images of LGBT life in later years.
SAGE Maine has been incorporated in Maine with the assistance of AARP of Maine.
