FERNDALE – Lesbian A-Sisters is a program that assists differently-abled lesbian and bisexual women in Metro Detroit with daily tasks, light home chores, gardening, transportation and errands.
The group is looking for additional volunteers to attend an upcoming training and to then assist with clients in need of services. The group also has openings on its Board of Advisors.
A program of Midwest AIDS Prevention Project, the group helps fill a need discovered several years ago after a women’s health conference was organized by MAPP. Differently-abled lesbian and bisexual women needed assistance that was not available or fulfilled adequately by existing social service agencies.
Clients are diverse in age, race, and socio-economic status, and live in cities and towns across Metro Detroit.
“The organization is a perfect example of people volunteering to help those with special needs in our area, and only through such giving of time and resources are we able to make this happen,” said Monica Mills, office manager at MAPP.
