The results are in. Santa Clara County recently released the findings of the LGBTQ+ Older Adult Survey that was launched earlier this year. The data collected from the survey is very enlightening and was used to form recommendations for future programs and services that focus on the needs of LGBTQ+ Older Adults in Santa Clara County.
Below you will find links to the Final Report and Executive summary for the survey as well as videos of the recorded town hall presentation and community member lived experience testimonials.

Some of the testimonials you will see in the video are actual members of Avenidas Rainbow Collective.
I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the data collected in the survey and let the county know your thoughts about the data and recommended steps to take moving forward.
