Openhouse & On Lok Partnership

We are creating a community-designed LGBTQ-welcoming Social Day program in the heart of San Francisco.

We aim to build a safe and affirming space where LGBTQ seniors experiencing cognitive differences such as dementia, and challenges with daily activities, can reconnect with community and receive the support they need to continue aging safely in a place that feels like home.

This innovative partnership between Openhouse and On Lok – groundbreaking pioneers in LGBTQ aging and elder care – will open San Francisco’s first LGBTQ-welcoming Social Day Center at 95 Laguna Street in early 2020. 

We are conducting market research, in-depth interviews, and community-focused design sessions to learn directly from LGBTQ seniors what they need to feel safe and welcomed in a Social Day Program.

To keep up to date on our progress and to learn how you can be part of our program created with and by the LGBTQ senior community, please subscribe to Openhouse’s monthly newsletter, and follow us on your favorite social media channels.
