Program description

WoodGreen provides support to individuals and families experiencing housing emergencies, such as fire, flood or sewage back up. Following the initial 72-hour period of assistance provided by the Red Cross, our housing workers can assist with storage of belongings, housing searches, advocacy and applications for income support programs and food cards. We also advocate for clients facing illegal evictions and developer relocation, working in tandem with local legal clinics. Additional support includes the creation of tenant associations and delivery of Town Hall meetings.


Our team can accompany clients to unit viewings and landlord meetings and support with transportation. We also provide clients with follow-up and case management support to ensure stabilization, reduce isolation, increase community connectedness and promote landlord and tenant relationships. Housing workers have direct access to housing allowances on a case-by-case basis.
