During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
If you want to help people in need and have some time to give during the week, it would make such a difference to people who come to our pantry for help!
Pantry volunteers work with our pantry coordinator to help end hunger in our community. As a volunteer, you'll talk with clients to determine what foods they need and then fill bags for clients to bring home with them. You'll also help restock shelves and organize the pantry There's a particular need for volunteers who speak Spanish or Haitian Creole, from basic skills to fluent speakers.
Available hours are Mondays through Fridays, 9:30am to 11:30am. Gracias! Mèsi!

Our mission is to effectively address the causes and complexities of the homeless and working poor by providing shelter, food, clothing, case management services, treatment services, transitional planning for short and long term goals, subsidized housing, education, employment, and a path towards independence and success.
Open Doors provides, shelter, support, and a path to success for people dealing with homelessness and poverty. The shelter has 95 beds to provide emergency shelter for individuals and families. From this same facility we operate a kitchen and pantry, serving meals three times a day and provide boxed and canned goods to individuals and families in our community to help them make ends meet.
We also operate a number of private residences, providing supportive housing to those who are working and earning an income but unable to afford housing in the area.
Open Doors operates primarily from private donations, with less than 30% of our operating budget coming from government funding.
We'll work with your schedule.
