Contact E-mail: kaitlin@thedoorway.ca

When: Friday May 17 & Saturday May 18 2019
Where: Cowboys Casino
Why: Young people need a safe, quiet, positive place to THINK about how they can get off the street.

Each year our Casino Fundraiser covers the costs for 18 months of rent and utilities at The Doorway. Our approach begins by giving a young person space. We value providing them with quiet, safety, internet and good food. If/when they are ready we have community volunteers and staff who take very seriously the second chance we are being given to provide these young people with a different experience with adults, care and society. These same people also volunteer at the Casino Fundraiser and may share a shift with you.

Thank you for supporting young people in at The Doorway.


Community volunteers directly support young people every day in our space! We are eager to welcome and train new volunteers as we grow a stronger and more diverse group of community members to support our young people. Community members working alongside young people, witness individual Planning Processes and LEARN about leaving the streets culture.

We also engage community members with professional skill sets that could contribute to the success of The Doorway!
