The Reality Is – It Could Be Any Of Them ,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.
WoodGreen is one of the largest social service agencies in Toronto, serving 37,000 people each year offering long-term solutions to the most critical social issues facing our city today.
WoodGreen has a plan to tackle poverty.
The Foundation is launching the DIFFERENCE MAKERS CAMPAIGN, a $20 million poverty reduction campaign to address all the inter-related facets of poverty including housing, skills training, stable employment, and the mental and physical health and well-being of the most vulnerable people in our city. Become a DIFFERENCE MAKER and see the tangible impact in your community.
