Our mission is to provide safe and supportive emergency shelter and services for people who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.
About Blue Door Shelters
Since 1982, Blue Door Shelters, a not-for-profit registered charitable agency governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, has been an integral part of York Region providing essential emergency shelter services. We serve all of York Region through our three homeless shelters: Leeder Place Family Shelter, Porter Place Men’s Shelter, and the York Region Youth Shelter. In addition to basic accommodation, Blue Door Shelters also provides residents with supportive counselling, referral to appropriate community services, life skill learning opportunities, and assistance to find and keep affordable housing. Blue Door Shelters is funded by the Regional Municipality of York, the United Way of York Region, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, and community and individual donations.
