The Face of Poverty has Changed
The WoodGreen Foundation is the charitable arm of WoodGreen Community Services.

The Foundation provides an opportunity for donors to become meaningfully engaged in WoodGreen’s work ― enhancing self-sufficiency, promoting well-being and reducing poverty through innovative solutions to critical social needs. ― and to see the impact of their support in the community.
THE FACE OF POVERTY IS CHANGING IN OUR CITY
Poverty is no longer confined to the fringes of society.
It is no longer the homeless man sleeping on the grate, the women fleeing an abusive situation or a teen squeegee wielder. It could be your neighbour, your colleague or even a family member.
The wealth gap in Toronto is widening and inequality is growing twice as fast here as in the rest of the country.
Together we can make a difference in our communities.
The numbers behind the faces
These numbers are a disturbing glimpse into complex social issues affecting our city. issues that inspire difference makers to take action.
