Wyse Helping Homes Program

We believe that every successful life’s journey starts with a safe place to call home.

The Wyse Helping Homes Program supports partner organizations who provide safe, reliable and supportive housing, meals and services to individuals and families in need.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wyse expanded its support of partner organizations to address this global crisis that has resulted in unprecedented local need.

Life’s challenges do not discriminate. Addiction. Abuse. Loss of job. So many challenges can leave people in need with only these valuable shelters to turn for temporary help.

The Wyse Helping Homes Program is our commitment of time, talent and financial support to help those who do so much for our community at the grassroots level, often on the tightest of budgets, including:

INTERVAL HOUSE

This incredible team helps women survivors of intimate partner violence and their children break the cycle of abuse. Our support provides emergency shelter and essentials, as well as assists in providing programs and services to help these women and children move into a brighter future, self-sufficiently.

PICKLE BARREL FREE MEAL PROGRAM

A unique partnership between Pickle Barrel restaurants and shelters across the GTA, including Blue Door Shelters, proves an innovative solution to one of the most pressing challenges of feeding thousands affected by COVID-19. Our support helps provide free, daily meals to the most vulnerable members of neighbourhoods across the region.

THE LIGHTHOUSE ORILLIA

This organization works around the clock to provide emergency food and housing support across the community. Our support helps run the COVID-19 emergency meal program to feed individuals experiencing homelessness, low-income families, and children and youth.

SCOTT MISSION

This organization helps provide a range of practical, emotional, and spiritual supports to thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness, low-income families, and children and youth. Our support helps further that mission by providing onsite meal services, clothing and basic necessities to the most vulnerable population in the downtown Toronto core.

FURNITURE BANK

This organization redistributes gently used furniture and housewares from donors in the community to families and individuals rebuilding their homes. Their participants include women and children leaving shelters, the formerly homeless, and newcomers and refugees to Canada. Our support helps these participants find exactly what their circumstances require to rebuild their homes.

This employee-driven initiative reinforces Wyse’s commitment to the communities we live, work and operate in – and to the kind of society we hope to help build for us all. Find out more by following us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram or by using the hashtag #WyseHelpingHomes.
