The notion of community resource identification and its value in promoting community building programs with an intergenerational initiative in urban communities in China is important to this paper. Although intergenerational programming is a new concept among Chinese stakeholders, it is considered a timely approach to community development, particularly with the retreat and destatization of socialist welfare in contemporary China. This paper describes how, with the application of the newly developed Community Resources Assessment Tool (CRAT), community resources, in particular resources from elderly people, were identified and mobilized for intergenerational programs in a community in Shanghai, China.
