We would like to thank our supporters for their generous contributions to the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging.
The Administration on Aging (AoA) is the Federal agency responsible for advancing the concerns and interests of older people and their caregivers. AoA works with and through the Aging Services Network to promote the development of a comprehensive and coordinated system of home and community-based long-term care that is responsive to the needs and preferences of older people and their family caregivers. AoA is part of the Department of Health and Human Services and is headed by the Assistant Secretary for Aging, who reports directly to the Secretary.
Established in 1994, the Gill Foundation's mission is to secure equal opportunity for all Americans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression. In its 16-year existence, the Gill Foundation has become one of the nation's largest private foundations focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equal rights. During these years, the Foundation has invested more than $162 million to support programs and nonprofit organizations across the country that share its commitment to equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans.
The Retirement Research Foundation, based in Chicago, is devoted exclusively to improving the quality of life for our nation's older adults, especially those who are vulnerable due to advanced age, economic disadvantage, or disparity related to race and ethnicity. Endowed in 1978 by the late John D. MacArthur, the Foundation has since awarded grants totaling more than $200 million. Through its grantmaking programs, RRF fulfills its mission by supporting innovative service, education, research, and advocacy projects that benefit older Americans nationwide.
“The U.S. Administration on Aging is proud to have played a part in the creation of a resource center designed to engage, empower and support mainstream aging providers, LGBT service providers and LGBT older adults. It will help ensure that LGBT elders have the supports they need to successfully age in place.”
—KATHY GREENLEE, ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR AGING, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES.
