Building the LGBTQ+ Senior Housing Market Profile

The Stonewall Bridge Survey

Please take our survey on the planning you have or have not done and what you think your needs might be as you age. It's anonymous and pretty much guaranteed to get you thinking.


You will help us design The Stonewall Bridge to be an innovative and responsive home care program for LGBTQ older adults.

Read About the Housing & Health Programs

we have in development




We are exploring all models of development including: mixed-use, mixed-income and cross-subsidies, apartment sharing, co-living and micro design, tenant defense, and aging in place support, in order to be able to create affordable living situations for a wide spectrum of income levels in the neighborhoods where people are already living – allowing them to age in place with dignity.

LGBTQ+ elders face a number of challenges beyond those of the general elder population.


They are more likely to:

• lack support networks

• lack family

• live in poverty

• experience discrimination in housing and health care delivery

So what can I do about it? 

SIgn up and learn.

We solemnly promise that we will never share your email with anyone
