Wonderful News! We've secured the future of our shelter!

Architectural renderings of the proposed rebuild of the Red Door Family Shelter by Harhay Construction.

We have wonderful news to share with you!   We have reached an agreement that will secure the future of our shelter at 875 Queen St. E., Toronto.

Last year the Red Door's family shelter site was left without a concrete future after the property was placed into receivership.

I am pleased to announce that Harhay Construction has purchased the property at 875 Queen St. E. and is working with the City of Toronto and the Red Door to incorporate the shelter into its development plans.

You can read about the development in today's Toronto Star article: Red Door Family Shelter to be part of Leslieville condo development

Our new facility will have 20,000 feet of brand new, purpose built shelter space with 94 beds.  The City of Toronto will build and own the shelter space on the property and lease it to the Red Door at a nominal cost ($1/annum).

This is a major victory for us, but it is not over yet. We will need your support for the future of our shelter.
We require $3 million to purchase the equipment, furnishings and materials we need in the new building so that we can continue to meet the needs of the homeless families we support.

You can donate now to our fundraising campaign to help us outfit our new shelter.

Thank you for your support!
