For more than ten years the Frank Harr Foundation has been an LGBTQIA education and outreach organization. Our goal is to provide safe spaces and help others do the same within their own community and organizations while providing leadership opportunities for our youth and support for our elder population.
Our youth need resources when navigating what it means to be a part of the greater LGBTQIA community. We are committed to providing programs, events and support for all young people whether they have familial and peer support or not. Additionally, initiatives exist for individuals, families, education and health providers wishing to gain a better understanding of how best to serve our youth.
SAGE Wilmington of the Cape Fear Coast is sponsored by the Frank Harr Foundation and an affiliate of SAGE USA – a national advocacy and services organization that has been looking out for LGBTQ elders since 1978. The Mission of SAGE Wilmington is to serve as an advocate with, and on behalf of, LGBTQ elders in the Cape Fear area. Our objective is to enhance the lives of LGBTQ seniors in the area by providing access to programs and activities that build up our unique community while providing a safe haven for LGBTQ older people and those that care for them.
The Frank Harr Foundation is committed to aligning with individuals, businesses (small and large), and organizations that help us fulfill our mission of addressing the needs of our LGBTQ community. Whether through engagement with Port City Pride, or joining forces and working with or promoting the efforts of PFLAG, SAGE, Queer Current, the LGBTQIA Resource Center at UNCW, Stonewall Sports and so many more, you can be confident that supporting us means you’re supporting efforts designed to improve the lives of those we serve.
