Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
