Jeff Gruchy

2012 Partnership Award - Toronto

Downsview Services for Seniors

Nominator Comments:

Jeff is recognized for connecting older adults with the community services they need. Because of Jeff’s deep understanding of the needs of the community, he has been able to secure new partnerships, expand program and services to hard-to-reach and isolated seniors, and developed strong relationships. Jeff is a stronger believer in equitable partnerships that are true win-wins scenarios that are focused on the impact they will have on stakeholders. This is demonstrated in the growth of the Walking Club, now with 150 participants, his leadership on the Occupational Health & Safety committee, and his active involvement in StreetSport — a Civic Action, DiverseCity Fellows, a project he co-founded
