History was made in February 2016 when Toronto City Council voted to approve the plans for a purpose-built family shelter at 875 Queen St. E. as part the new development by Harhay Developments.
The current family shelter, church and pharmacy building will be replaced with a mixed-use building of condominiums, retail units and the purpose-built family shelter.
“This is a tremendous breakthrough for how innovative new development can take shape, and I hope the success story of the Red Door Shelter will be a model for inclusive communities across Toronto.” Councillor Paula Fletcher
“This is a historic moment for the Red Door Shelter. With Council approval, we have a secured future.” Carol Latchford, Red Door Family Shelter
