Event description


Institute on Aging welcomes you to a free 3-Hour Openhouse training, to be held at 3575 Geary Blvd., San Francisco, CA 94118

Openhouse enables San Francisco Bay Area LGBTQ older adults to overcome the unique challenges they face as they age by providing housing, direct services and community programs. As a result, Openhouse has reduced isolation and empowered LGBTQ older adults to improve their overall health, well-being and economic security.

From Isolation to Inclusion: LGBTQ Cultural Humility Training is an Openhouse accredited training.
