HDC and FST with the support of members of the Faculty of Social Work, U of T, we have agreed to collaborate to conduct a gap analysis to find out the actual conditions of Latino Hispanic Seniors in the GTA.
As this population increases and ages, it is agreed that we have the very important need to establish with clarity what are its demographic characteristics, its location -social and geographic its challenges and strengths, so that we can establish a short, mid and long term strategy to address its needs and expectations. This is crucial as we require establishing basic evidence with problems including poverty, racialization and marginalization.
The funds will support the hiring of a leading researcher and the expenses related to probing the Latino Hispanic Seniors Community so that we can answer the key questions. The beneficiaries of the project are the Latino Hispanic Seniors’ Community and those who care for them.
This initiative is based on analysis and consultation done with our broad community to respond to what is perceived as an impending crisis with this population. We intend to provide answers with the participation of the community, individuals and organizations. We are supporting seniors, but further, we are entrenching the quality of life and wellbeing of our community through the long range work of this initiative.
