Volunteers are the backbone of SAGEServes. Without volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to offer many of the programs and services that are so important to enriching the lives of LGBTQ+ elders.

Ways to Volunteer

SAGEServes offers a variety of volunteer opportunities, including Friendly Visiting, SAGEConnect, and other ad hoc volunteer opportunities such as meal service, event support, and front desk supervision.


SAGEConnect is a phone-buddy program that matches LGBTQ+ elders with volunteers for weekly phone calls. This volunteer opportunity is available to anyone in the United States.

Friendly Visiting

Homebound or neighborhood-bound LGBTQ+ older people can often have little weekly contact with the outside other than visits with health professionals, and virtually no contact with members of the LGBTQ+ community. Friendly Visitor volunteers are paired with these individuals and commit to visiting their match once a week for an hour or two, and calling to check in between visits. 

SAGEServes currently offers programs in New York City and Fort Lauderdale. Visit these pages to learn more!
