SERVICE DETAIL

Immigrant Seniors Services

Immigrant Seniors Services facilitate reciprocal integration among senior services and immigrant senior populations through a community development process. It attempts to reduce social isolation among immigrant seniors by encouraging them to participate in multicultural events, social activities and educational sessions throughout the city. The program engages strong leaders from within the various ethnic groups and involves community volunteers in connecting with newcomers, low-income seniors and those isolated be it for reasons of health, limited knowledge of resources or those without family members.

Senior Testimonial

The many events that ISS organizes are very beneficial for seniors like us. Apart from the symposium, which is very helpful, it is nice to simply gather and allow seniors to meet each other and develop friendships. Rudy and I are very grateful to CCIS for having this program. It gets us out of the house and we have made a lot of new friends.

I will not be around in the next 35 years, but my spirit will remain to see CCIS grow and become stronger as an agency serving newcomers and the seniors, continue to help newcomers and the seniors, and continue to make seniors happy and confident that they are still worthy and valued in this world. Thank you CCIS.
