Nominator Comments:

Azita has been working closely with the Healthy Aging Alberta team at United Way Calgary and Area to launch an initiative that brings together immigrant-serving organizations throughout the province to discuss relevant and persistent challenges faced by organizations in service delivery for older adult immigrants. She has been looking for a way to bring organizations together and have a common space to have important discussions faced in the sector.

Azita understands the issues faced by her organization and others that work in the same community and she wants to share these issues with other organizations providing services to immigrant seniors in communities throughout Alberta. Azita has developed a panel discussion with a focus on the immigrant serving sector to bring people from senior serving organizations together to share resources, create further discussions and present opportunities beyond the local context.

Have you been helped by a human service champion? We would love to hear about it.
