ince 1982, the Red Door has provided services for families and individuals who need safe and supportive emergency shelter.  In the early 80's there was only one other shelter operating in Toronto. Responding to the growing need for shelter space for homeless families, the Red Door was opened in the basement of the Woodgreen United Church by a group of volunteers.  We have now grown to be one of the largest family shelters in the city, providing shelter and support to over 500 families every year.

Many people can find themselves in desperate need. These include women who are fleeing violence at home, families who are evicted, refugees, or young mothers who may have nowhere to go.
