Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Civil Rights, Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy

Mission: Our goal is to provide outreach services to the senior LGBT community in the Coachella Valley. The Center provides social and recreational opportunities as well as referral services and programs to assist seniors in maintaining independence and self-sufficiency.  We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with our primary objective being to network and interact with the greater LGBT and senior communities in the area and provide a space that is welcoming, safe and active. We encourage you to stop by the Golden Rainbow and see our facility!

Results: Due to the expanding need for services and recognition of our successes, Golden Rainbow Center moved to a new property in downtown Palm Springs. The larger location provides much needed space for expanded programs such as a weekly Food Pantry supplying necessities to the disadvantaged.

Target demographics: We target the largely underserved Senior LGBT community in the Coachella Valley (i.e. greater Palm Springs area) by providing support, social activities, classes and programs to enable seniors to have an alternate family. Among the many programs currently offered are: Mental Health (including PEI - Prevention & Early Intervention Plan with Riverside County), Fitness atter Fifty, Tai Chi, Computers, Self Defense, Financial and MediCare counselling, and the Food Pantry.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Serving about 300 each week

Geographic areas served: Riverside County Calfornia
