Community Door

Community Door is a group of like-minded service providers who are dedicated to co-locating service agencies under one roof and creating a shared-space, social services hub.

Initially, United Way of Peel Region brought the concept of a “Human Services Centre” to Peel Region. The concept of a shared-space social services location was already in operation in various Canadian cities, to great success, but had not yet flourished in Southern Ontario. Over a period of 18 months, 22 member not-for-profit agencies pledged to support the concept, and Community Door became a reality. The Community door opened in 2011. There are currently locations in Mississauga and Brampton. Plans for a Community Door in Caledon are underway. Fore more information, visit www.communitydoor.ca.
