Our Mission

Openhouse enables San Francisco Bay Area LGBTQ seniors to overcome the unique challenges they face as they age by providing housing, direct services and community programs.

About us

 

Founded in 1998, Openhouse works to center the voices and experiences of LGBTQ older adults by providing opportunities to make social connections and build community.

Openhouse is committed to creating a safe environment to encourage and support community members to share our diverse perspectives and identities to foster dynamic community engagement.

We recognize and affirm that LGBTQ older adults live at intersections of race, ethnicity, class, culture, HIV status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, spirituality and ability. At Openhouse, everyone is a community member.
