GLEH LA, a Nonprofit Affiliate of Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing, Announces New Program Director
Date:11/13/2008

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing- Los Angeles (GLEH LA) and the managing general partner of the nation's first nonprofit, affordable, multicultural housing development that includes a community service center supporting the needs of GLBT elders, for both residents and non-residents, has announced the hiring of Sheila Moore, LCSW, MSG as its new Director of Programs & Community Outreach. Sheila comes to GLEH LA directly from the Olympia Medical Center where she worked as Director of the Center for Geriatric Health. Sheila earned a Masters Degree in Social Work and a Masters Degree in Gerontology at the University of Southern California.

"We are thrilled to welcome Sheila to GLEH," said GLEH Executive Director Mark Supper. "Our facility opened its doors in Hollywood in June of 2007 and her work will be critical to providing our residents with programs that enhance their lives as they become acclimated to their new homes. In addition, the programs that Sheila will develop will benefit the larger elder GLBT community through our community service center."

The $20.3M, 103-unit building located on the corner of Selma and Ivar Avenues in Hollywood is designed to house individuals of mixed incomes under an affordable housing model. 30 of the units are set aside for people who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, or who are living with HIV/AIDS. "It is extremely fulfilling, both professionally and personally, to be given the opportunity of being involved with an unprecedented, historical venture like this one," said Sheila Moore. "We have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of a vastly underserved segment of the GLBT community. I look forward to serving the residents at Triangle Square and our greater community of GLBT seniors. My work will include creating and continuing partnerships with service providers who have been long time champions of Los Angeles area seniors. Together, we can do good and significant work on behalf of and with GLBT seniors. I am grateful to the GLEH LA Board of Directors for allowing me the chance to direct this very important social services program.

An estimated 30,000 to 75,000 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender older adults reside in the greater Los Angeles area (based on a range of 3 to 8 percent of the total aging population).

GLEH LA

GLEH LA was formed to be the Managing General Partner of the partnership which developed, owns and will operate the facility and its social services center. GLEH LA shares the mission of its predecessor and related entity, GLEH.

GLEH is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building and operating high-quality affordable, non-discriminatory residential communities with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) older-adult recreational and social service centers. The shared goal of GLEH LA and GLEH is to provide a safe, nurturing environment that supports the well-being of GLBT older adults.

In October 2005, GLEH and its development partners began building the nation's first nonprofit, affordable, multicultural housing development that includes a community service center supporting the needs of GLBT elders, both residents and non-residents. The $20.3M facility created 103 affordable apartments and is located in the heart of Hollywood's most vibrant redevelopment district. The building's GLBT Older Adult Community Center will serve residents of the building and the entire community with social services, classes and cultural events. This project not only benefits the Greater Los Angeles community, but will be recognized as a model of GLBT elder care, and as proof that the GLBT community protects and cares for its own - young and old alike.

GLEH LA is an equal housing opportunity provider and supports the letter and intent of all local, state and federal fair housing laws and will offer its housing on a nondiscriminatory basis without regard to color, race, religion, sex, marital status, mental or physical disability, age, familial status, sexual orientation or national origin.
