The Red Door operates the largest shelter in Toronto for families including moms and children escaping domestic violence, as well as single moms, two-parent families and single dads affected by a housing crisis or who are newcomers or refugees.
Due to the high demand for shelter beds, it is vitally important that the Red Door can continue to provide safe, emergency shelter and support for families in crisis while the new family shelter is being built. Fortunately the City of Toronto was able to lease a newly renovated apartment building at 1430 Gerrard St. E. in Little India for the family shelter to operate during this period.
