BACKGROUND Open Door Mission is a Gospel Rescue Mission providing basic needs and life-changing programs for the homeless and needy, with long-term solutions that break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Our desire is to be a bridge for people trying to reclaim the basic necessities of life, restore their God-given dignity and hope, and rejoin the community as full and active participants. Candace L. Gregory, President/ CEO, is a national advocate for the homeless. She uses her extensive experience in community prevention programs to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. She longs to build a bridge of hope to others and
develop innovative ways to make it happen through partnerships and collaborations.
BRAG LINES Each day, Open Door Mission’s campus offers 816 safe shelter beds to homeless men, women, and children, serves over 2,000 nutritious meals, and provides preventive measures to more than 275 people living in poverty. Every month, Open Door Mission partners with more than 865 volunteers logging over 6,000 hours making a difference right here in their community.

PAY IT FORWARD From September through November, Open Door Mission expects to provide more than 191,000 hot, nutritious meals to the Heartland’s hungry—and an additional 60,000 in December. We invite you, your family, church, or business to get on board to help supply canned vegetables, canned fruit, instant potatoes, canned meat, and boxed meals so we can stock our warehouse for the holidays and winter months.
