LGBTQIA+-friendly Affordable Senior Housing
To meet the growing demand for care and services for the aging LGBTQIA+ population in the Dallas community, Resource Center has launched a $4M capital campaign for the construction of an LGBTQIA+-friendly affordable senior housing facility. Through providing seniors with affirming opportunities for socialization, recreation, and emotional support, the Center’s vision is to transform the way LGBTQIA+ older adults live, access services, and develop community support for generations to come.
In order to achieve this imperative goal, the Center has partnered with developer Matthews Southwest to construct an 84-unit building open to all. Located just north of Inwood Road in Dallas’ Oak Lawn neighborhood, the 2-acre site provides access to services and transportation, including the Inwood Road DART Station. The powerful LGBTQIA+ history of Oak Lawn offers the project an appropriate, significant, and beautiful location while honoring the contributions of LGBTQIA+ seniors.
