Welcome to 411 Seniors Centre Society!
Serving Seniors Since 1972
Our Mission Statement
To give older adults voice and provide access to information, activities and sustainable services in a culturally sensitive environment that enhances the quality of their lives, and to expand our reach through collaboration and partnerships with like-minded organizations.
The Greater Vancouver Shelter Strategy (GVSS), a non profit supporting a coordinated response to issues related to homelessness in Metro Vancouver, is working with bc211 and the SFU Gerontology Research Centre, to identify, integrate, and improve Housing First service delivery. Part of this research involves connecting with service providers across Metro Vancouver to identify and discuss how community resources support under-served populations.
We are inviting service providers working with homeless and at-risk seniors and seniors who have experienced homelessness to help identify and explore how community supports and resources assist an aging population in maintaining their housing, particularly in a Housing First context.
Housing First is a paradigm experiencing great impact and recognition across Canada. When implementing Housing First, one of the keys for success is the ability to partner with outside resources that support individuals in maintaining their housing. Across Metro Vancouver we hear stories of varying levels of access to these types of support services and we’d like to understand this better.
