Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice, formerly Youth for Chinese Seniors, have been serving low-income immigrant seniors in Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver Coast Salish Territories since 2015. With a small team of staff and the support of over fifty volunteers, we provide outreach to isolated seniors, interpretation and translation services, advocacy and diverse programming.  We build power in our community through intergenerational relationship building and by helping seniors overcome language and cultural barriers to services that meet their basic needs.  We combine service provision and grassroots organizing, with a core belief that service work is political and that as a community, we have the tools we need to take care of one another. We empower seniors and youth to work together to improve their communities and tackle the difficult problems of oppression and violence. Our vision is of a Chinatown that is intergenerational and thriving, with accessible and culturally relevant services and an environment that cherishes our seniors and youth.

Yarrow recognizes and values the diversity of everyone in our community. As an organization we are committed to welcoming and affirming the human rights of all people, including people of colour, Indigenous peoples, LGBTQ people, sex workers, and people with disabilities.
