Who We Are
A Gospel Rescue Mission that meets the needs of individuals and families while inspiring HOPE for lasting change.
What We Do
Since 1954, Open Door Mission has been committed to reaching out a helping hand to as many as possible through the following programs:
Each day, Open Door Mission’s campus offers 917 safe shelter beds to people experiencing homelessness. Nutritious meals, safe shelter, and quality care are provided for men, women, and families in need of immediate assistance at Lydia House and the Garland Thompson Men’s Center. Finding safe shelter and a warm bed could mean the difference between life and death for many experiencing homelessness.
Hope begins with a meal. Each day, Open Door Mission serves 4,747 meals to men, women, and families experiencing hunger. Meeting the basic needs of people who are hurting and experiencing hunger opens the door to empowering these individuals to create lasting change.
Every day, Open Door Mission’s Outreach Centers provide more than 1,000 people with homeless prevention resources through consumer choice food pantries, diapers, clothes, household items, and gently used furniture at no cost, empowering them to remain in their own homes.
Open Door Mission offers over 40 life-changing programs, including the New Life Recovery Program and Journey to Work. Open Door Mission is committed to empowering men, women, and families with the tools they need to become self-sufficient, contributing members of the community.
Open Door Mission is committed to making high quality, professional healthcare accessible in our community. Our free Health and Wellness Clinic provides guests with medical visits and diverts patients from hospital and emergency room visits. Our expanded Behavioral Health Department works with men, women, and children, helping to relieve mental health challenges.

“Open Door Mission is a BLESSING for the people who can’t do it on their own. I am very grateful.”
“If it wasn’t for Open Door Mission, I would be in prison or dead right now.”
