  • Life stabilization and pathways to services

  • Mail/message services; telephone access; Internet/word processing; translation/interpretation; form filling; Income Tax/income support filings; information/warm referral; case management

  • Reduced social isolation and increased community engagement

  • Peer-to-peer activities through Peer Groups, each led by an NIP-developed Peer Leader

  • Peer-supported community events/festivals

  • Partner-supported skill-building workshops, e.g., volunteering, civic engagement, elder abuse

All services currently delivered/available via Zoom/telephone.
