The Los Angeles-based Gay and Lesbian Elder Housing project received a $1 million gift in December from the Annenberg Foundation toward the building of Encore Hall, the country's first nonprofit housing development for lower-income gay seniors. The $18.6 million project will break ground in February and will open in the summer of 2006. In New- Mexico, the $34 million for-profit RainbowVision Santa Fe community announced in early January that its construction is now fully financed; the project should be completed by the end of this year.
"These are historic efforts we're malting because the gay community has yet to really focus on taking care of our elders," said Brian Neimark, executive director for GLEH.
