WoodGreen Community Services has been tackling pressing unmet needs for more than 86 years, and the needs in Toronto, have never been greater. In addition to a housing crisis, the city is reeling from the effects of the pandemic– and with increasing inflation, more and more individuals and families are struggling to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.
It is organizations such as WoodGreen that are stepping into the breach, holding this city together with food banks for people who are hungry, mental health counselling for young and old who are overwhelmed by their circumstances, support for refugees fleeing atrocity, crisis services for isolated seniors, a safe place to live for women fleeing abuse or for individuals experiencing homelessness.
Through the UNMET Campaign, we are focused on supporting people who are UNhoused, UNemployed, UNsafe, UNwelcome, and UNseen. With the help of donors such as you, WoodGreen will be able to ensure the needs of these underserved individuals of today and tomorrow are MET. WoodGreen is on the front line, working to create positive social change in our city. WoodGreen plays a vital role in keeping our city safe and healthy. More than ever, Toronto needs our help and more than ever, WoodGreen needs yours.
What’s happening in Toronto is UNdeniable. There are growing numbers of Torontonians in need of a home, meaningful employment, mental health services, a community to call their own, or simply an opportunity to thrive.
Despite these challenges, we feel optimistic about the future of our city because we know that WoodGreen is making positive change. We are working with partners to develop innovative solutions to some of Toronto’s pressing problems of today and tomorrow.
