About the Red Door Shelter
Since 1982, the Red Door has provided services for families and individuals who need safe and supportive emergency shelter. 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. The Red Door has now grown to be one of the largest family shelters in the city, providing shelter and support to over 500 families every year.
