Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders Demographics

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.  Your feedback is critical and will be used to:
1) help determine advocacy priorities for SAGE Metro Portland’s Housing Committee,
2) share with other non-profits and community groups working to support LGBT older adults
3) to plan session related to the theme, "Home is Where the Heart Is!", at the 2016, Gay and Grey Expo. Your participation is entirely voluntary and will be kept anonymous.  If you have opinions or suggestions that require follow up, you will be given an opportunity to include your name and contact information at the end of the survey. Your personal information will not be attached to your survey responses should you choose to provide it. Thank you for your continued support.
