What the Coalition for Aging LGBT IS
An organization that serves as the central focal point of services, cultivating a synergistic spirit of cooperation related to assisting LGBT aging in North Texas. The Coalition is a small organization that will ultimately consist of social workers, public policy experts, financial development and an organization director or chief executive officer. The Coalition will incorporate the appropriate disciplines, local and national organizations, and services to become an expert in the topic of LGBT aging for North Texas. The Coalition will tap into the talents of existing services and research in North Texas; serve in a case management role and direct advocacy for members of the LGBT Community. The Coalition will develop a public policy forum on the topic of LGBT aging and will work with academia and the political structures to improve municipal, state, and federal legislation for significant representation to the North Texas aging LGBT population. The Coalition will work diligently to create synergy and maintain a genuine spirit of cooperation and involvement of area service providers. The Coalition will seek grants, government funding, and individual financial support to provide resources to complete its mission.
