PEN DOOR MISSION Open Door Mission is a Gospel Rescue Mission that meets the basic needs of individuals and families while inspiring HOPE for lasting change.

HE FIRST TIME SOMEONE COMES TO Open Door Mission, they are often driven by an urgent physical need for food and shelter from street life—even for a short while. But thankfully, what happens once they arrive can have a lasting impact. At Open Door Mission they find shelter—not only from the storms that bring harsh weather, but also from the storms of life.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES: Hungry for Food, Hungry for New Life: You can provide 10 hot, nutritious meals for hungry and homeless men, women and children for just $21.50. Visit today!

Each day, Open Door Mission’s campus offers 816 safe shelter beds to homeless men, women and children and serves over 2,100 nutritious meals to feed the hungry. Daily, more than 1,000 people in our community who are struggling to make ends meet find a variety of services at our Family Outreach/Donation Centers that help prevent them from slipping into the despair of homelessness. We realize there are many worthwhile causes and ministries you could choose to be a part of, and we never take your gift for granted. We hope the heartfelt mutual concern we share for our neediest neighbors will convince you that Open Door Mission is worthy of your support. As we work together, we can truly make a difference in our community!
