WoodGreen is one of the most experienced supportive housing providers in Toronto with deep ties to the East End. We care about this community. We own or operate 20 housing facilities in Toronto. We know the importance of connecting with our neighbours wherever we go. We are excited to bring our full range of services, expertise, and the benefit of our close partnerships and deep connections across East Toronto, to support the health, housing stability and inclusion of the seniors who call 540 Cedarvale Ave. home.
Our staff are welcoming tenants and looking forward to building a strong community. WoodGreen is committed to active outreach. Over the past few months, our dedicated team organized several community engagement activities with the intent to get to know existing neighbours and introduce WoodGreen. These activities included meeting with various individuals, community groups and organizations that may have an interest in the facility, door-knocking in the neighbourhood, distributing flyers, regularly updating the dedicated webpage, school presentations, hosting an open house and forming an Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee.
As a resident of the Cedarvale-Trenton area, you may wish to consult WoodGreen’s 540 Cedarvale Community Decision Tree if you are not sure where to direct your queries.
