New Peer-Led Support Groups for LGBTQ+ Older Adults

July 11, 2018

This dynamic group of peer facilitators will be leading support groups all across DC for older adults who identify as LGBTQ+.

Iona Senior Services and Whitman-Walker Health are excited to announce the start of Silver Circles: bi-monthly, peer-led support groups for DC residents who are over 60 and identify as LGBTQ+.

Connect with other LGBTQ+ peers, create a safe space to talk about issues that impact you, and build support to help navigate challenges! Each group will be co-facilitated by peers and will meet for one hour twice a month.

Silver Circles will be held at the following locations:

Iona Senior Services
4125 Albemarle St., NW
Washington, DC 20016

Max Robinson Center
2301 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., SE
Washington, DC 20020

Whitman-Walker Health
1525 14th St., NW
Washington, DC 20005

To join a Silver Circle, contact Michael Mitchell at Whitman-Walker Health at either mmitchell@whitman-walker.org or 202-939-7646. He will conduct a short intake and answer your questions about meeting times and anything else you’d like to know.

Funding for Silver Circles is provided by the D.C. Office on Aging.
