WR Grassroots Response to the Ukrainian Crisis

We are a volunteer-led group focused on helping displaced Ukrainians fleeing war and arriving in Waterloo Region.

About Waterloo Region Grassroots Response

We are a completely volunteer-led group that believes in decentralizing our activities so that volunteers feel empowered to take action on needs that they see in the community. 

We always have many roles to fill but we are especially in need of group leaders.

NEW Ukrainian Guest House

We are very excited to be working with a property owner in Maryhill, Woolwich who is opening up their 13 bedroom facility to Ukrainian families.

We are looking for additional property owners to work with.
