Coalition for Aging LGBT
CFA LGBT is a non-profit that serves as a catalyst to improve and protect the quality of life of older LGBT adults in North Texas through coordination and collaborations in the areas of health, housing, advocacy, financial security and social services. We were conceived in 2011 to fill a gap in services that was not being filled by existing, mostly HIV-focused, LGBT non-profits. In 2015, the organization held its initial Summit on LGBT Aging at bequest of President Barack Obama, who requested that original founder and prominent LGBT community figure, Cannon Flowers, help to raise awareness and support in the area of aging in the LGBT community. This resulted in convening partners, brainstorming solutions, and creating coordination and programming to serve those in need. In 2016, The Coalition officially formed a 501(c)3.
