Building Family Among Senior Populations

Dates: 
Thursday, January 31, 2013 - 8:30am

As Baby Boomers face their own issues with aging, caring for the needs of their parents bring its own unique challenge. What are the ways that congregations can best provide care and community for these “pillars” of the church? While heterosexual contemporaries may have children or other family units to provide support in later years, what happens to the LGBT individuals who have been estranged from their family? Hear stories of hope and challenge from members of the senior community and those who provide services for them. Learn how congregations can provide support systems for this generation - moderated by scholar and counselor Robert S. Brooks, PhD, of CLGS’ Coalition of Welcoming Congregations.
