About Open Doors

Mission - Together, building a diverse and inclusive community that supports our shared dignity and well being.

Vision - Every Person has a Seat at the Table.


We grow a vibrant and successful community garden that supports our meals and market programs. We serve over 200 delicious meals fresh weekly and operate a community market (foodbank) for people to access food for their families. Open Doors also offers a free clothing store, Christmas Families and backpack programs supporting hundreds of children each year.


We are planning for the future and exploring efforts to create social enterprise opportunities that successfully support a thriving community.


Funds raised through CNOY allow us to continue to grow this good work, safely and with dignity and equity always at the forefront.
