FSWE Flood Assistance Program


The heavy rain and flooding that struck Windsor-Essex at the end of September was some of the worst that this area has seen.

Many residents of the city have been devastated by the impact of that torrential downpour, and there is an urgent need for relief for some members of our community.

Have you been negatively impacted by the flooding? Do you require economic or community relief?

Apply for our Flood Assistance Fund, if you require assistance with any of the following:

  • Clean up and removal of water damaged items or furniture
  • Assistance to rebuild an area that is used to house a person and/or family
  • Assistance to rebuild an area used to generate the primary source of income for the household
  • Assistance with repair to a furnace and/or hot water tank
  • Anything else directly caused by the flood

Family Services Windsor-Essex will assist affected households, to complete applications for Disaster Recovery Assistance for Ontarians.

Please note that the Flood Assistance Program ability to assist is based on available donations and financial need.

2016 Rebuilding Wheels Rebuilding Lives Program

In Windsor-Essex, many individuals and families struggle to meet their transportation needs. Public transportation may be limited or unavailable in certain communities, creating significant challenges for many to gain or maintain employment. In many cases, those experiencing low-income are in need of transportation.

The goal of the Rebuilding Wheels Rebuilding Lives (RWRL) program is to engage high school students to repair donated vehicles for individuals and families living in low income, who are struggling to meet their transportation needs, through a one-time gift of a donated used vehicle.

If you are in need of support through the RWRL program, apply today!

Application forms (and more information) can be found here.
