Red Door Family Shelter, one of Toronto’s oldest operating family shelters, has reopened its doors in Leslieville. The innovative shelter is now purpose-built and will house 350 to 400 families every year. It was made possible by a unique arrangement between the City of Toronto and Harhay Developments and integrates the shelter into a private residential condo building, occupying four floors at its original location on the corner of Booth Ave. and Queen St. E. (189 Booth Ave.).
