Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice 世代同行會 supports youth and low-income immigrant seniors in Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside. We build power in our community through intergenerational relationship building, and by helping seniors overcome language and cultural barriers to services that meet their basic needs. We combine service provision and grassroots organizing, with a core belief that service work is political and that as a community, we have the tools we need to take care of one another. We empower seniors and youth to work together to improve their communities and tackle the difficult problems of oppression and violence. Our vision is of a Chinatown that is intergenerational and thriving, with accessible and culturally relevant services and an environment that cherishes our seniors and youth.

Yarrow recognizes and values the diversity of everyone in our community. As an organization we are committed to welcoming and affirming the human rights of all people, including people of colour, indigenous peoples, LGBTQ people, sex workers, and people with disabilities.

世代同行會在唐人街和市中心東端為青年和低收入年老移民提供支持。我們通過建立多代同堂的關係和幫助老年人克服其滿足基本生活需求遇到語言及文化的障礙,而增加社區力量。我們認為服務的提供是政治性行為,而我們社區的資源足以相互照顧,因此結合了草根組織和服務工作。我們支持青年和長者合作以改善自己的社區,應付壓迫和暴力的複雜社會問題。我們展望一個繁榮昌盛、多代同堂的唐人街,而此唐人街無障礙、有符合居民文化的服務社,並且有珍惜我們的青年和長者的環境。
