Thank you Joanna Lavoie and the Beach-East York Neighbourhood Voice for the feature, and our thanks to Ernie for sharing his personal story about his struggle to find affordable housing, and now what living at WoodGreen means to him.

In fact, WoodGreen is one of the largest non-municipal providers of affordable housing in Toronto with more than 800 units across 12 sites, with another WoodGreen affordable housing site for seniors currently under construction. With the launch of our “LESSHOMELESS” awareness campaign, WoodGreen is calling on caring individuals to start the conversation and do more to achieve ‘less homeless’.

“We need to develop long-term strategies to enable us to meet the needs of our clients and our greater Toronto community, so that is why we want to start the conversation to help people better understand the importance of affordable housing and the role they can play as Difference Makers,” said Teresa Vasilopoulos, Executive Director of The WoodGreen Foundation.
