The Doorway - Making Change possible

The Doorway is a direct community response to young people on the street in Calgary choosing to rejoin society. There are significant gaps in what systems say they want to do to help these young people, and what they actually accomplish. In the late 80’s The Doorway was designed to address these gaps. An understanding of the differences between street culture and mainstream culture led to the development of a self-determined strategic planning process to make lasting change.

The Doorway has learned self-determination is key to personal change.

The Doorway is welcoming new participants.
Please visit us to begin planning your way off the street.
