Red Door Shelter Statement July 29, 2020

It has come to our recent attention that an individual has been fraudulently canvassing the neighbourhood door-to-door selling chocolate bars claiming to represent Red Door. We want to clarify that this individual does not represent Red Door and is unfortunately misleading the community. If you encounter an individual claiming to be fundraising for Red Door, please email

Thank you for your continued support of ending family homelessness.

Protecting our Clients, Staff and Community

Updated June 4th, 2020

Ontario has extended the provincial Declaration of Emergency until June 30th in response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The Red Door Family Shelter remains committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff and community as we go through this challenging time together.

We continue to provide emergency shelter for homeless families and for women and children escaping domestic abuse. We are also serving outreach clients, who are former residents building new lives in their own homes.

Red Door Shelter Statement April 3, 2020

A resident and her children moved into interim accommodations yesterday, April 2, that provides her enhanced privacy and the ability to self-isolate. This was a planned move as it had become apparent that our shelter was not equipped to meet the complexity of her needs. This is not a decision we take lightly. We are collaborating with the city to find her more suitable long-term accommodations and we are confident she and her children will be taken care of.
