Generation Plus Launches Two New Initiatives for 2023!

Generation Plus is excited to announce two new initiatives for our LGBTQ+ senior community. Through our surveys we identified some needs and wants for the Generation Plus program and we are excited to kick off the new year with these projects!

Thrive! is an educational lunch and learn program for our Generation Plus LGBTQ+ senior community. We believe in nurturing the mind, body and spirit in an all-inclusive environment. Each month features a new topic such as nutrition, exercise, and more. This series showcases members of our community presenting information to better enjoy our lives as LGBTQ+ elders. Dates and more information to be announced soon.

Connections is a monthly meeting for our LGBTQ+ elders to socialize, educate and advocate. Too often aging slows us down from making important connections within our community. The vision for Connections is to provide a thriving group that welcomes and elevates us all. Anchored in inclusivity we improve the understanding of services available to the ‘active aging’ citizens. Our goals include bringing awareness and information to a growing LGBTQ+ elder community settling in the region. Our organization affirms the right of everyone to live as their authentic self. Great communication begins with connection. Meetings will occur the 3rd Saturday of each month, 3PM – 5PM and will be facilitated by a member of our Generation Plus Committee. Meetings will be held at Mountain Care, 68 Sweeten Creek Road, Asheville, NC 28803. Signage will be placed on Sweeten Creek Road for the meetings and additional signage will be at the facility.

We are so excited to see what 2023 brings!
