Open Door's vision is to foster life transformation in a compassionate collaborative community where the marginalized feel safe asking for help, resources are accessible, and all are treated with dignity.

Mission statement

The Open Door exists to serve people at their point of need, cultivating personal growth and community sustainability. Serving those individuals who are homeless and low income. We model our Faith in Jesus by providing practical solutions, to physical, spiritual, and relational brokenness.

Statement of faith

Each member of the governing body of Open Door Mission, the Board of Directors, as a qualification for office, shall subscribe before taking office and yearly thereafter to his or her behalf in the following statement of faith:

While recognizing and respecting the various differences, doctrinal and otherwise, among denominations and churches, this Corporation affirms its adherence to the following statement of faith:

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, ultimately authoritative Word of God.

We believe there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is Deity, that He was born of a virgin, that we are redeemed by His atoning death through His shed blood, that He bodily resurrected and ascended into Heaven, and that He will come again in power and great glory.

We believe that individuals are saved through a direct, personal encounter with the risen Lord, at which time they are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whom Christ indwells each believer, enabling him or her to live in relationship with Him and to live a godly life of obedience as he or she reaches for maturity.

We believe the Holy Spirit unites all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body, the church.

Program accomplishments

The Mission serves, on average, more than 1,600 meals a month. It also provides temporary sanctuary to those people experiencing temporary homelessness. A 52-bed shelter will open in the fall of 2022 to expand its capacity to serve even more people. 226 Warren Street is also the site for Code Blue Shelter, a winter program designed to provide safety and protection from inclement winter weather.

The emergency food pantry provides over 20,000 meals and 254,196 pounds of food to 2,600 individuals and families. The Mission also distributes thousands of pounds of gleaned & other food items to local social service organizations. We also partner with a local school to provide weekend lunches for 64 identified "at-risk" students.
