We work together with seniors living in
the downtown south and the downtown eastside to build and strengthen
our community by developing a healthy community spirit that enables
seniors to help themselves, and one another.
VSMS works to improve the lives of seniors living in SRA (Single Room Accommodation)
units by establishing social support systems, run by the seniors themselves.
The Seniors Centre is a drop-in facility that
provides a safe, friendly “living room” environment
for seniors coming together to dine (at a nominal
fee), relax, play games, and access informational resources that
are central to their quality of life.
