Message from the Chair and President & CEO of WoodGreen Community Services

The pandemic changed many things in our city. Our communities, and how we live and work, have been vastly altered.

However, one thing hasn’t changed — WoodGreen’s commitment to our clients.

This past year, we played an important role in ensuring vulnerable people weren’t left behind. We provided critical COVID-19 vaccine outreach in at-risk communities as a member of the East Toronto Health Partners. We supported people of all ages whose mental health was dramatically affected by the pandemic. We changed how we delivered some of our programs, offering in-person and online options to better support people where they are. Moreover, as the cost of living in our city drastically increased, we created new programs to help people find meaningful employment and to strengthen their financial literacy, and developed unique partnerships with governments and developers to build much-needed affordable housing.

The unmet needs in our city aren’t decreasing. Heading into the year ahead, we will continue to work with even more passion, ingenuity, creativity, and leadership to solve the ever-growing and pressing issues in Toronto.

We would like to recognize and express our gratitude to our donors, volunteers, and 750 dedicated staff members for their many contributions to our organization. Thank you for making a difference.

We hope you enjoy reading our 2021–2022 Impact Report.

Helping single mothers and their children

The challenges facing single mothers living in shelters or precarious situations in Toronto can seem insurmountable.

Homeward Bound empowers these women with the skills to break down barriers and create new futures for themselves and their children. This year we provided 88 mothers and their 125 children with stable housing and child care as they upgraded their education; pursued a fully-funded, two-year college diploma; or started a new career.

An in-depth study was completed that discovered the program not only has a positive impact on the participants but on their children, too. Mothers told us they were motivated by their children’s happiness in a stable environment; the more they saw their kids thrive, the harder the mothers worked. And the children who witnessed the strength and resiliency of their mothers were driven to persevere in school and in life.

Soon we will be able to help even more at-risk mothers by doubling our capacity with the addition of a second Toronto Homeward Bound campus. WoodGreen is transforming an aging property on Queen Street East into an eight-storey, 96-unit building for mothers and their children.

In the meantime, we recently opened 23 new Homeward Bound housing units on Gerrard Street East thanks to a partnership with the City of Toronto. These changes mean we will be able to help more mother-led families and enhance the breadth and depth of this innovative program in the coming year.

Our Impact

100% of Homeward Bound graduates were successfully employed

Mother says Homeward Bound ‘completely changes your life’

“I’m enjoying life more. Now I laugh and I smile.” It’s a long way from where Venus was this time last year.

The single mother of three had no money. She had just left an abusive relationship. Without a home, she either crammed into any space a friend could offer or stayed in Toronto shelters.

Then she learned about WoodGreen and Homeward Bound, and she says her life changed forever.

Giving youth the tools they need for success

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on youth, particularly on their mental health and opportunities for employment.

WoodGreen’s youth programs have helped young Toronto residents navigate this uncertain time. Our Youth Wellness Centre provided marginalized youth access to a full range of services. We also launched a first-of-its-kind Youth Wellness Subsidy Support Program for youth in and from the child welfare system who are seeking mental health support. The program offsets long wait times and ensures that young people can access the help they need in a safe and timely manner.

Our Rites of Passage program continued to offer Afrikan-centred resources, guidance, and support for Black youth between the ages of 14–25, with 80 youth participating last year. We also hosted a BBQ and workshops on a variety of topics for our Rites of Passage Alumni.

Additionally, WoodGreen offered employment programs to help youth enter the workforce. In partnership with the CEE Centre for Young Black Professionals, WoodGreen assisted Black youth in acquiring the knowledge required to start a successful career in the visual effects industry. We also offered a number of other programs (including social media content creation and job skills training) to help young people find meaningful work.

Looking at the year ahead, we plan to expand our youth programs, including adding civic engagement and entrepreneurial support programs. Our Rites of Passage Alumni are also planning a trip to Tanzania, where they will participate in community development activities.

Our Impact

360 youth supported by our Youth Wellness Centre

376 counselling sessions provided

226 youth participated in employment programs and workshops

Teaming up with Andre De Grasse to suit up Toronto youth

Some participants of our Rites of Passage and Visual Effects (VFX) Compositing programs had an opportunity to kick off their careers in style, thanks to a partnership between WoodGreen, custom apparel brand INDOCHINO, and Canadian Olympic Sprinter Andre De Grasse.

“The VFX program for me has been nothing short of a life changer. I have gained adequate knowledge to develop and better my skills in the field of visual effects, which has led me to [start] a new potential [career].”

Bringing safety, smiles, and sustenance to seniors

Ensuring Toronto’s seniors are safe, protected, and connected has never been more important than in the last year. WoodGreen met that challenge head on.

We brought COVID-19 vaccines and flu vaccines directly to our seniors’ buildings in conjunction with the East Toronto Health Partners.

Our Meals on Wheels service continued through the pandemic, with volunteers providing many seniors with some of the few smiling faces they saw in person during lockdowns. While many services closed their doors in the wake of COVID, our Toronto Seniors Helpline and COSS (Crisis Outreach Service for Seniors) continued to help seniors in crisis. They also were able to absorb the spike in demand created by the absence of other community services.

Our Financial Foundations for Vulnerable Seniors pilot project has helped hundreds of seniors living on low incomes increase their financial stability during this time of inflation. By assisting seniors with filing their taxes, we helped recover funds owed to vulnerable people. At a time when those on fixed incomes face increasing costs, WoodGreen stands ready to provide help, support, and solutions. This program was made possible thanks to the United Way Greater Toronto’s Allan Slaight Seniors Fund.

Looking forward, we are working to expand our assisted living programs to new locations in East Toronto and beyond. We will also work closely with the East Toronto Health Partners to support better-integrated care for seniors, especially assisting with outreach efforts for vulnerable seniors in the community.

Our Impact

2,012 seniors in crisis assisted by Crisis Outreach and Support Services

50,000 calls taken by Toronto Seniors Helpline from seniors in distress

$1.33 million in recovered tax refunds and benefits owed to seniors

When a meal is also a lifeline for hundreds in Toronto

It’s a simple knock at the door. But with it, Jim Cant and Nancy Sullivan bring both sustenance and safety. They’ve volunteered hundreds of hours driving and delivering for WoodGreen’s Meals on Wheels program.

“There is a great gratification in knowing you are helping someone,” says Jim.

Along with the meal, volunteers offer a friendly face and a safety check, ensuring vulnerable seniors and those with disabilities are coping physically and mentally. This has been vitally important during the pandemic.

This year volunteers knocked on doors 51,000 times, delivering meals to 670 clients.

Helping seniors live independently

73-year-old Financial Empowerment Client

“Since participating in the financial counselling program, my stress level has been greatly reduced because I know there is a counsellor and a program ready to help me with financial tasks that had previously been overwhelming.”

Brenda Guilfoyle,
Transportation Services Client

“If there are any boxes there to tick, I would tick them all. The drivers are wonderful. They are always on time and are very accommodating. Sometimes, my treatments end earlier than they are scheduled for and nine times out of ten, the team is able to change my pick-up time.”

Erna Howell, Meals On Wheels Client

“It’s given me a chance to heal … If I hadn’t decided to order Meals on Wheels, that would mean I would be eating less. I wouldn’t be able to get to the grocery store to shop.”

Helping Toronto residents experience greater financial empowerment

Toronto is now the most expensive place to live in Canada. It is becoming increasingly difficult for residents — especially people with low and fixed incomes — to make ends meet.

Through our financial empowerment programs, we help families navigate financial challenges and improve their financial literacy.

Thanks to a generous donation from Scotiabank, our Family Finance Clinic entered its second year, supporting families with budgeting, reducing debt, increasing savings, and understanding and improving credit ratings. At the end of the program, all the families had a budget and were up to date on their tax filings.

We also launched a new, innovative pilot project, the Financial Empowerment Homelessness Prevention program, thanks to a $1 million gift from The Sprott Foundation. Through this program, WoodGreen worked to stop evictions before they happened by helping vulnerable clients file their taxes, apply for the correct benefits and access applicable subsidies to ensure they do not fall into homelessness.

We know that one of the ways people can achieve financial independence is through stable employment. To offer more employment support for Toronto residents, WoodGreen integrated with JobStart to expand our offering of employment, settlement, and workforce-development programs across the city. In the coming year, we will continue to expand our leadership in the employment and financial empowerment sectors with more partnerships and programming to better serve Torontonians.

Our Impact

545 clients supported through the Financial Empowerment Homelessness Prevention program, collecting approximately
$1.5 million in tax benefits

965 financial empowerment counselling sessions provided for
563 clients

WoodGreen is there to help as inflation causes stress for more families

The rising cost of living is increasing anxiety levels about finances, particularly among Toronto’s low and fixed-income families.

“Two of the biggest concerns I’m hearing from clients are about food costs and housing costs,” says Colby Koecher, who works with WoodGreen’s Financial Empowerment team.

Fortunately, this team has years of experience helping Torontonians who are struggling to make ends meet.

Creating more affordable housing in Toronto

WoodGreen Community Services’ President & CEO Anne Babcock (centre) visits WoodGreen’s new housing building for seniors on Gerrard Street East with the federal Minister of Housing and Diversity & Inclusion The Honourable Ahmed Hussen (left), MP for Toronto-Danforth Julie Dabrusin, and WoodGreen’s Vice President of Housing and Homelessness Services Mwarigha (right).

Toronto is in a housing crisis. More and more residents are finding safe and affordable housing to be simply out of reach.

WoodGreen is about providing solutions, and that’s what we’re doing about the shortage of affordable housing.

This year, we officially opened a brand new 36-unit social housing building on Gerrard Street East that provides affordable homes to vulnerable seniors in the community. This is part of our commitment to deliver 2,000 new affordable housing units by 2030 through our own development and through partnerships with developers in Toronto to bring our total number of units to 3,000.

As WoodGreen is a proven changemaker in this sector, governments of all levels continue to look to us as a partner in community projects. We are leading two new affordable housing projects as part of the federal government’s Rapid Housing Initiative. The first location at 60 Bowden St. will add 50 affordable housing units for seniors.

The second location at 1080 Queen St. E. will add nine units as part of our innovative Seniors Cluster Care Model. Cluster care provides clients with around-the-clock personal care, including check-ups, medication administration, bathing and toileting, and other forms of assistance and care, along with common areas and independent living spaces.

Our commitment to addressing the problem of affordable housing for the most vulnerable and hardest-to-house population in the city is a key priority for WoodGreen. We are already making great gains; this coming year will bring us even closer to reaching that goal.

Progress to 3,000 affordable housing units by 2030

More affordable housing for seniors in Toronto’s east end

Earlier this year, we celebrated the opening of our new social housing building for seniors in the city’s east end alongside local representatives and community members. Learn how our partnerships with governments and the community brought this new building to life.

Giving families in crisis a home and a future

Stunned and scared, Lia Glykis held an eviction notice in her hand.

It was the middle of the pandemic and suddenly she had to find a home big enough for her and four growing kids. She called WoodGreen.

Homeward Bound provided an apartment for her 20-year-old daughter and five-year-old granddaughter. The rest of the family is now in a four-bedroom downtown home, which WoodGreen has the use of, thanks to an agreement with developer Allied Properties REIT.

“As long as the kids and me are together that’s what matters,” says Lia. “Without WoodGreen, I don’t know where any of us would have ended up.”

Message from The WoodGreen Foundation’s
Chair and Executive Director

This year’s Impact Report shows the dedication of the WoodGreen team, a team that includes incredible staff, dedicated volunteers, and selfless donors. In the face of the pandemic, the 2021–22 fiscal year showed how our united efforts can bring about dramatic change.

Through an outpouring of donor support, this year also saw the successful completion of our $20 million poverty-reduction campaign, The Difference Makers. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this remarkable achievement.

We also wish to pay tribute to our Honorary Campaign Chair, Ed Clark; to Leo Salom, our Campaign Chair; and to the members of our Campaign Cabinet. Their dedication was instrumental in this accomplishment.

With your generous gifts to The Difference Makers campaign, we are expanding WoodGreen’s affordable housing, and increasing programs and services to meet the needs of our ever-growing client base and safeguard the health and well-being of vulnerable individuals and families in our city. It would not have been possible without you.

Thank you for your support and your commitment to creating a Toronto where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

In December 2021, Nostalgia Coffee Company and Demaras Racing hosted a food drive. More than 440 pounds in food donations were collected and donated to WoodGreen to help address food insecurity.

Our Donors

Thank you to all of our donors for your continued generosity and support of WoodGreen’s programs and services. You are an important part of our organization, our work would not be possible without you.

See our full list of donors.

The Difference Makers campaign update

The Difference Makers campaign had a target of $20 million in support of poverty reduction, and it was the most ambitious campaign in WoodGreen’s 85-year history. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, more than 1,600 donors came forward to help WoodGreen’s clients with generous gifts that surpassed the $20 million campaign goal. The impact on our clients cannot be overstated.

Here is a sample of what donors enabled us to achieve during the course of the campaign:

  • Created more affordable housing spots with the opening of two new buildings
  • Provided emergency food and household supplies during the pandemic to over 10,000 individuals and families
  • Provided employment help and job training for individuals in need of employment
  • Supported our personal support workers (PSWs) as they cared for frail seniors who couldn’t leave their homes due to pandemic restrictions
  • Welcomed newcomers from war-torn countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine, providing help with housing and other immediate needs, language programs, and counselling
  • Expanded and enhanced our Homeward Bound program with the creation of an additional 22 spaces for mother-led families, and 34 apartments for recent graduates and their families

Building on the momentum of the campaign, WoodGreen is poised to have an even greater impact in our community — addressing unmet needs, developing innovative solutions to complex social issues, and creating real, sustainable change.

What drives someone to support WoodGreen? One donor’s story

All over Toronto, people are helping others, lifting up their neighbours however they can. One of those people is Norm Fraser.

A long-time Toronto resident, Norm deeply values supporting the very real efforts of those seeking to bring real change to real people.

Deciding which organization would best convert his donation into making a difference was key.
