Elder Programs

Santa Barbara Lavender Elders

The peer-led mission of SaBLE (Santa Barbara Lavender Elders/Mayores) is to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ elders living in Southern Santa Barbara County. We are concerned about the continuing struggle that so many of us are facing around the country.

We want to remind you that we have a great place where LGBTQ+ seniors like us and our allies in southern Santa Barbara County can get together once a month. We've been enjoying each other and educational presentations here for the past four years. SaBLE is currently meeting on the last Friday of each month at Jill's Place (subject to change- make sure to confirm location).

We need your support to attend our monthly potlucks. We are LGBTQ+ seniors, and we welcome LGBTQ+ Elders as well as our straight allies, family and friends. All are welcome - young and old. Please join us!

Senior Connection, a free service of information for seniors, can be found at 805-965-3288. It is open from 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.

Find us on Facebook to learn more about current and upcoming SaBLE events!

Pacific Pride Foundation regularly provides affordable LGBTQ+ Sensitivity Trainings in Senior Care Centers in collaboration with SaBLE.
