Boulder County Area Agency on Aging is committed to serving LGBTQ+ older adults in Boulder County.
Rainbow Connections Volunteer Program
Our Rainbow Connections Volunteer Program matches LGBTQ+ older adults with LGBTQ+ volunteers who check in to see how they are doing and provide connection to those experiencing social isolation. Pre-pandemic, our volunteers were meeting in person but now focus most of their contact through the phone and/or computer. If you know of anyone who could benefit from our Rainbow Connections volunteer program, please email Michael Chifalo.
Project Visibility is a cultural responsiveness training for service providers and any interested party on the strengths and needs of LGBTQ+ older adults. Trainings are tailored for the audience, and typically include a locally-produced short film, a brief “basics” presentation, and interactive exercises. Please contact Michael Chifalo, LGBTQ+ Program Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 303-441-4518 or visit the Project Visibility website for more information.
Boulder County Area Agency on Aging sends a monthly newsletter which includes activities of interest and community events. To be added to the list email Michael Chifalo or give Michael a call at 303-441-4518.
