Our friends at Senior pride are asking for information about the need for assistance to LGBT PrintSeniors.  If you are a senior or know someone who is an LGBT senior, you can help them.

Please take the time to fill in this survey at the link below. Senior Pride is working to promote neighborhood services for LGBTQI Elders who want to stay independent and in their homes for as long as possible. Your input is important.

If you know someone who would like to receive this survey in the mail, please call 520-312-8923 and give mailing address. Thanks!
