Greater Lansing Guide to Aging Services for the
This guide is intended to serve aging LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,
Questioning, and Intersex) individuals, their caregivers, and family members by
providing information about aging services in the Lansing, MI, area. It is intended to be an educational resource for the community as they consider the scope of aging services.
We've added a video page to the site that will feature videos from LAHR events. Our first video is from the parade celebrating Lansing's 150th Anniversary. We'll be adding more videos as they become available.

Did you know?
LBGTQ (Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender, or Queer) youth comprise nearly 1 out of every 5 homeless youth, mostly because of family conflict. They are at a greater risk for victimization, unsafe sexual practices, and mental health issues. Homeless youth who identify as Transgender are 7 times more likely to experience acts of sexual violence than straight homeless youth. For more information about this crisis, and why resources like Gateway Community Services are invaluable, please follow these links:
The Forty-to-None Project portal provides resources and guides that identify reasons why LBGTQ youth become homeless, tells of the experience of living without family support, and gives solutions that keep LBGTQ youth safe and off the street. Their Informational Guides for Service Providers provides a curriculum, best practices, and a toolkit.
