Volunteering with Red Door

*Student Placements:  Due to COVID-19, we are not accepting student placements until further notice*

"We are currently not recruiting new volunteers at this time. We thank you for your interested, but please check back after April 30th"



Volunteers are an important part of the Red Door team.  Your contribution as a volunteer allows us to provide the best service and support to our families. 

    Volunteers provide support to many of our programs and services, including:

    • Children's Programs
    • Homework Club 
    • Food Bank
    • Donation Room
    • Workshop Facilitation 
    • Yoga, Meditation and Fitness
    • Special Events


    *Please note, our group volunteer activities are currently on hold until further notice. We can't accommodate large activities due to ongoing covid protocols*


      Please note, volunteers at the shelter must be 15 years of age or older.  Here is our volunteer application process:

      1. Complete a volunteer application
      2. Attend an interview
      3. Attend an orientation session
      4. Submit a vulnerable sector criminal background check 

      We will review your volunteer application once it's been submitted, and we'll contact you if our current volunteer openings match your interests and availability.  If no suitable position is available at this time, your application will be kept on file for a period of 6 months and will be considered for future volunteer openings.  Please note, most of our volunteer positions are on weekdays or weeknights, other than special event volunteers.

      Thank you again for your interest!
