Link Generations Postcard

Link Generations was recognized internationally in 2021 by UpSocial Canada, a nonprofit organization that began ten years ago in Barcelona, Spain, to address community social challenges. 

UpSocial Canada launched the Caring Community Challenge for Toronto’s Bathurst and Finch Neighborhoods, focusing on models that “bolster feelings of belonging and social inclusion.” They identified more than 90 programs worldwide as models that have fostered greater inclusion across cultures and generations. They narrowed down the 90 programs to 24 feasible models for the Toronto community to review and further narrowed their search to 14 case studies.

From those case studies, three innovative approaches were selected to pilot within the Bathurst and Finch Neighborhoods. Link Generations was selected to be one of those three programs.

This exciting collaboration led to a formal partnership between Link Generations and Circle of Care, part of Sinai Health in Toronto, Canada. Programs were piloted in 2021 and are ongoing. You can read more about the program here.
