About Blue Door
Since 1982, Blue Door has been an integral part of the community, providing emergency housing for the homeless population of York Region. As the region has grown, so too have the services of our organization. Initiated as a shelter for single men, Blue Door has expanded to include emergency housing programs for families and youth.
Volunteers provide support to many of our programs. Some of our opportunities include:
- In-kind Donations – sorting and organizing in-kind items received from our donors – (on hold due to COVID-19)
- Food Services – helping prep meals and assisting with food inventories – (on hold due to COVID-19)
- Garden maintenance – weeding and watering various gardens and planter boxes
