Coffee & Conversation Gets a Boost

AARP Pennsylvania provides financial support

PERSAD Center’s Coffee & Conversation is a free weekly get-together for LGBT seniors (55+).

Held each Tuesday morning, 8:30-10:30 AM at PERSAD in Lawrenceville, seniors gather in a friendly, casual atmosphere and enjoy free coffee, donuts and conversation. NEXUS Pittsburgh co-sponsors the weekly gathering. 

Beyond the caffeine jolt enjoyed by our guests, Coffee & Conversation is getting a boost in the form of financial support from AARP Pennsylvania. Special thanks goes out to Jennifer Blatz, Associate State Director Community Outreach for AARP Pennsylvania, for helping to underwrite the cost of supplies and hosting Coffee & Conversation. We are grateful for the support!
