Our mission

GRIOT Circle’s mission is to provide programs and services to assist its members remove the isolation and fear surrounding aging in the LGBT people of color community as well as the larger community, and to eliminate discrimination wherever it exists. GRIOT’s hope is to empower individuals to be self-sufficient and free to enjoy aging in a safe and supportive environment.

What we do

GRIOT Circle remains the only organization exclusively dedicated to serving the needs of LGBT elders of color. Membership, however, is open to all.
Our core programs include weekly support groups that include the Men over 50 HIV Group, a Women’s Group, a bi-weekly wood carving class, a weekly Book Club Group, monthly member birthday parties and a variety of social events onsite (i.e. December Holiday party, Valentine’s Day party). GRIOT recently expanded its programs offering Fitness for Elder classes, Art Classes and Social Night which allow members to gather and participate in a health related topic followed by dinner. GRIOT also has a Buddy to Buddy program which helps members reduce isolation by partnering them with other members in mutual relationships and trust. This program decreases isolation, enhances social and educational opportunities, provides consistent support, disseminates information and increases communication among elders in LGBT communities of color. Additionally, members have access to case management services. As part of this service, an on- site case manager provides members with assistance with benefits and entitlements, advocacy and referrals. The case manager also conducts home visits as needed.
