Sacramento’s First LBGT Senior Housing is Coming to Midtown

16th-and-f

I’m super excited to be working on a new project just a 4-minute bike ride, 10-minute bus ride, or 15-minute walk from our office in Lavender Heights — the hub of Sacramento’s LGBT community in what some (or at least I) would say is the heart of Midtown. Lavender Courtyard by Mutual Housing is transforming vacant / blighted land into 50+ new energy efficient homes for low-income senior LGBT family and friends.

Everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive in place regardless of income, identity, age or race.

Everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive in place — regardless of income, identity, age or race. And though the world is much more tolerant than when these civil rights heroes were blazing the trail towards marriage equality, the world is still not perfect. LGBT seniors have higher rates of depression, experienced bullying and social exclusion in many mainstream senior facilities. Lavender Courtyard is poised to be an oasis — a place where residents can escape an often cruel outside world and age in place feeling safe, comfortable and accepted. Not to mention, this project looks really good.
