Celebrate With Us

SideDoor was established in 1995 and is currently Yellowknife’s only center dedicated to providing housing and lifestyle development supports to youth.

We were founded as a result of an identified need among youth, the community and government to have an empowerment-based program available to youth for whom ‘home’ was not an option.
