How We Serve

At JCAN, we serve and empower underserved communities, particularly older adults impacted by social determinants of health. Our goal is to create a supportive community and combat social isolation among seniors through culturally relevant approaches and social events. Learn more about our programs below.


Social Connect for Seniors

Through our Social Connect for Seniors program, we aim to combat social isolation among older adults. We organize culturally relevant social events to help seniors connect with others in their community. Join us every Tuesday from 11am - 1pm at the Malvern Community Centre in Toronto!

Friday Rise, Shine, and Dine Breakfast

Our Friday Rise Shrine and Dine Breakfast program provides nutritious meals and socialization opportunities for seniors. This program helps combat food insecurity and social isolation among older adults.

Many cultures connect through food. Sharing a meal together and cultivating community through our Friday breakfast program has created unbreakable bonds among participants.


Drumming Circle

We use JCAN Drums to provide a sense of connection and nostalgia for participants from different cultural backgrounds. Our Drumming Circle program promotes socialization and emotional well-being among seniors.

Drumming has a great significance cross-culturally, emphasizing power, rhythm, freedom and perseverance - drumming has brought our JCAN community together in ways we couldn't have anticipated.
