Wychwood Open Door Drop-in Centre

Wychwood Open Door Drop-in Centre Wychwood Open Door is a Drop-in Centre located in the St. Clair West Toronto area. Wychwood is a registered not-for-profit charity. Wychwood Open Door’s mission is to reduce social isolation, boost nutrition and help develop life skills among homeless and socially isolated people.

We achieve our mission by serving hot, nutritious meals three days a week. We also provide programming that fosters social interaction, recreational activities and life skills as well as offer community and health information, and a clothing exchange. We believe that no one in our community should go hungry nor should they be without essential support systems. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about what we do in the community or if you are interested in volunteering [email protected]

We're so pleased to share that after over a decade of partnership, we have chosen to join The Stop Community Food Centre.

As demand for our services has grown, it has become an increasing struggle for our largely volunteer-led organization to meet the needs of our community. As a result, in late 2017 we approached The Stop with an offer of acquisition, and on October 7, 2019, they assumed operations under the name The Stop’s Wychwood Open Door.

The Stop will strive to preserve the legacy of our beloved neighbourhood organization and will maintain its core staff and programming. Additionally, The Stop will embark on a review of our facilities with the goal of expanding and enhancing our services—targeted to the specific needs of the site and its clients.

Our choice of The Stop was informed by our longstanding relationship and shared mission, and this will go a long way in ensuring a healthy transition. The Stop also brings with it an extended network of facilities and resources, including The Stop’s Green Barn at the nearby Artscape Wychwood Barns.

At a time of undeniable crisis for low-income people in Toronto, we are confident that this decision will result in significant improvement in the quality and sustainability of services for our community.

As of October 7, 2019, Wychwood Open Door Drop-in Centre no longer exists, and this account will not be updated. Meanwhile, The Stop's Wychwood Open Door will continue to offer all of our existing community programs, with no changes in staff or hours of operation. You can find ongoing updates about the transition at www.thestop.org.

Thank you so much for supporting our work. We look forward to welcoming you at The Stop's Wychwood Open Door!

Hi guys, This is unrelated to this group but please share! Gabriella Antoine has been missing since Feb 2nd. She is usually seen in Yorkville, University and Dundas, Kensington Market, and the City Place condo's Location. She has a medical condition that impairs her brain function, and she needs her medication. Her wallet has been found and turned into her home branch at her bank. So, she has no ID or money. If you have heard from her or seen her at all, please contact me, Daniel Anaka or the police. https://www.facebook.com/TPSOperations/photos/a.1657862634484654/2273602592910652/?type=3&theater
