Red Door Family Shelter Red Door Family Shelter

For over 30 years The Red Door Family Shelter has been on the front lines of delivering support services to women and children fleeing violence, to refugees, and to homeless families in Toronto and the GTA. Every year we help over 500 families by providing emergency shelter and supportive programs to help them heal and rebuild their lives.

On any given night over 50% of our residents are children. Children and Youth are the most vulnerable casualties of homelessness. Taking care of a child's emotional and psychological well-being is a high priority for us at the Red Door.

Join us on April 19th to raise money for the programs that we provide for children to help them overcome the effects of homeless and abuse. Run with Team Red Door to help provide homeless children with happy and healthy memories to carry with them into their new lives.
