OutReach LGBTQ+ Community Center has different advocate positions to assist the community in a variety of ways.

The current LGBTQ+ Elder Advocate is Kristi Mason (pictured left). This role connects with LGBT elders and assist them in finding services, and work with elder serving agencies in Dane County to ensure that they are welcoming and culturally competent to provide services to LGBT elders.

The Elder Advocate is in charge of the LGBTQ+ Elders: Creating Inclusive Spaces  project as well as serving as OutReach liaison on the LGBTQ 50+ Alliance committee.

If businesses provide elder care or services, they can request a training or webinar on how to care for LGBTQ elders or to get information on the unique economic and health disparities that LGBTQ elders face.
