Problem Statement

Supporting homeless Seniors Program in Logan and Main Street in Winnipeg is a way of human dignity, respect, love and caring. The Canada Sierra Leone Friendship Society Inc. (CSLFS Inc), is currently focusing on helping seniors experiencing homelessness on Logan and Main Street Winnipeg.

CSLFS Inc. is a registered non-profit organization focused on seniors experiencing homelessness, day programming, wellness check, supplying food, drinks with little financial support for their personal needs. Working and supporting seniors experiencing homelessness during winter and COVID-19 pandemic is:

  1. To understand how seniors can be able to secure their homes before they retire and get older?
  2. To know what kinds of support are needed for seniors?
  3. To understand how CSLFS Inc volunteers engage seniors into activities to avoid trauma?
  4. To find new strategy of seniors to come back to their normal lives 
  5. To better comprehend the experience of homelessness in Logan and Main Street during winter and this COVID-19 unprecedented pandemic
