Welcome to WoodGreen

The face of poverty is changing. WoodGreen provides solutions.

WoodGreen is one of the largest social service agencies in Toronto, delivering a broad range of integrated programs — from physical, mental health and disability services to affordable housing and employment initiatives. For 85 years, we have worked with communities and policy makers to reduce poverty, enhance self-sufficiency, and promote health and wellbeing across the city.

As a United Way Anchor Agency with a proven track record, we are part of a network of local organizations striving to develop innovative solutions to critical social needs.
