About Woolwich Community Services

Woolwich Community Services (WCS) has been the helping hand, supportive friend, and the community service provider to thousands of Woolwich and northern Wellesley Township residents since 1974.


We are the feet on the street, a resource helping where help is needed and a referral service to other community support providers. Since the completion of our new building in 2014 we have been able to enhance our existing programs and welcome many outside service providers to our location. Together we are making a difference to help enhance our community.


WCS Focuses on three key areas of the community:


-Individual and Family Services

-Children and Youth

-Programs for all


We are known for providing programs like the Food Hamper program and the Family Violence Prevention program but we offer much more.


Come and join WCS on the Coldest Night of the Year walk and help raise money for programs offered in YOUR community.
