Support Groups​

As the needs of our community evolve, we work to make sure that you have the support, services and resources needed to enhance and maintain your quality of life. Members support and learn from each other, help build capacity and increase their ability to foster a safer and more supportive environment. 

GRIOT support groups can be your first step in finding the support you need.

GRIOT offers three distinct groups for members:

The Men’s Sexual Health Program:

A weekly discussion group which focuses on topics such as sex, mental health, relationships and self-care. This open to men over 50.

The Women's Support Group

A weekly group which focuses on self-determination, self-esteem, healthy practices, and leadership development. This is open to women over 50.

Trans Social

A once a month social group for over 50 Transgender and gender non-conforming older adults.

MAKE A GIFT

Since 1996, GRIOT Circle has provided a welcoming space, culturally sensitive services,
and member-centered programming that affirm the lives of LGBTQ elders of color.
Much of this is made possible because of our generous supporters.
