Community Roots Housing and GenPride are collaborating on Seattle’s first affordable housing project designed to be an affirming environment for LGBTQ elders and the greater LGBTQ community.
LGBTQ seniors face a unique set of challenges and health disparities as they age: compared to their peers, they are more likely to be in poverty, are at higher risk for illness, are less likely to have the support of children or biological family, and often face discrimination and difficulty finding culturally competent care.
With 118 affordable homes and a ground floor community center operated by GenPride, the building will incorporate design, programming, and health interventions affirming of LGBTQ elders.
Pride Place opened in September 2023. Learn more on the project page.
