Today, WoodGreen’s reach extends far beyond Toronto’s East End. Now one of the largest social service agencies in the city, we serve 37,000 people each year, working to improve health, independence and well-being for seniors; support newcomers as they settle in Canada; facilitate access to housing and employment resources for single mothers; provide high-quality child care and enriching after-school programs; build confidence and job readiness for youth; find housing for people experiencing homelessness and deliver a wide range of mental health services. WoodGreen has grown to employ 750 staff members and relies on the invaluable efforts of 1,000 volunteers.
A founding United Way of Toronto member agency, we are part of a strong network of local service agencies working to develop innovative solutions to critical social needs. WoodGreen programs are often referred to as examples of best practice, replicated across the Greater Toronto Area. We work closely with clients and policymakers to reshape social service delivery and create new opportunities to thrive.
