    • As the population of older Americans increases and becomes more diverse, there is an expanded need to determine the strategies that organizations utilize to best meet the needs of marginalized older adults, particularly in regards to addressing disparities in terms of race, ethnicity and sexual orientation.  

      This study aims to: 1) identify a set of strategies that address disparities and meet the needs of marginalized older adults according to key informants from community based aging service organizations; and         2) combine identified organizational strategies into one unified, grounded theory that can explain how best to provide effective services to marginalized older adults. 

    • This list serves as a resource for gerontological social workers and other professionals. It is a preliminary list of agencies serving diverse elders within the Denver and Boulder communities of Colorado.  It is NOT intended to be a comprehensive list but a work in progress.  Please let me know of any inaccuracies or additions.
