Ariad Gives Back

To celebrate Ariad’s 25th anniversary, we have given away $25,000 to ten different charitiesAriadites were divided into ten teams who worked together to independently choose a charity that would receive $2,500.The charities are all Toronto-based, and are small enough to see their $2,500 donation have a real impact on their mission. In these posts, we will highlight each charity to share their story and show why they were selected by our team.

Red Door Family Shelter

Since 1982, the Red Door Family Shelter has provided services for families and individuals who need safe and supportive emergency shelter. In the early 80’s there was only one other shelter operating in Toronto. Responding to the growing need for shelter space for homeless families, the Red Door was opened in the basement of the Woodgreen United Church by a group of volunteers. They have now grown to be one of the largest family shelters in the city, providing shelter and support to over 500 families every year.

Many people can find themselves in desperate need. These include women who are fleeing violence at home, families who are evicted, refugees, or young mothers who may have nowhere to go. A dedicated and caring staff team addresses the particular needs of families in crisis. The services provided reduce the impact of homelessness by providing safe and supportive shelter to hundreds of families each year. Red Door helps keep families together by providing services for the whole family. They assist each family in establishing a stable life beyond the shelter.

Ariad is extremely proud to support the Red Door Family Shelter in our 25th anniversary Ariad Gives Back charity drive. We are committed to philanthropy as a central pillar of our culture, and hope that Ariad’s $2,500 donation to Red Door Family Shelter can help families in times of crisis both during the holiday season and beyond.
