Check out this great documentary on our partners NASKARZ, another program of the place-based strategy. Naskarz provides automotive, social, and educational opportunities for young people from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

Elders Connect (First Generation of the most recent ELDERS CONNECT Research Project)

Elders Connect partners have come together to meet the challenges experienced by seniors living in the DTES, Strathcona and Grandview-Woodlands neighbourhoods, particularly focusing on Aboriginal, immigrant, and other vulnerable groups. Participating organizations support the commitment to a. work together to develop a common vision and identify issues and develop new opportunities through a coordinated and strategic approach b. seek the perspectives of diverse local seniors and support their involvement in the design and delivery of elders connect activities.
