An Update on the ZAMI NOBLA Biggers Residence for Black Lesbian Elders
Huge thanks to everyone who donated money for the makeover. We have completed the exterior work with the exception of the accessibility ramp, and are raising funds for the interior renovation.
Our goal is to provide long-term housing for two lesbian elders over 55!
Without Community, there is no progress! Please consider making a donation to help us complete the renovation.
