We Care Calls

The We Care Call program is an OUTMemphis project created by the Senior Services committee. The program is free to all Senior clients. The program is operated by volunteers who are available to make weekly phone calls for outreach to LGBT seniors age 55 years old and older. The program was designed for LGBT seniors who live in the Mid-South area and may want/need a weekly telephone call for support. The program matches frail, home-bound, or isolated LGBT seniors AND LGBT caretakers with volunteers from the Mid-South community.

To be eligible to receive calls through the We Care Call program, you must:

• Identify as LGBT
• Be 55 years and older
• Be generally home-bound due to long-term illness, age or current situation
• Or be a responsible caretaker of LGBT spouse, partner or significant other
•  Or be isolated because people around you do not know you are LGBT
