About Open Doors

At Open Doors we offer over a dozen free social support programs for the community. We ourselves are a food-centric organization that has a foodbank. community garden and several hot meals a week. We also partner in our area with other like minded organizations to offer support in parenting, mental health and wellness and skills development so that the community has access to numerous resources in one visit. We have a very small staff and rely heavily on volunteer's time and talents to make things run smoothly. We strive to be an inclusive and welcoming space for all people, and work hard at making community connection throughout all areas. Join us on the Coldest Night of the Year to raise awareness and funds for those in our community who need it most!
