Open Door Mission -downtown
Thirteen years ago God led me to full time missions at Open Door Mission, my how things have changed and not changed.  I have seen the mission grow in not only number of buildings but even more in the number of life changing programs we offer.
Unfortunately the number of people needing help has grown almost exponentially and Open Door Mission now serves 37%to 56% more people (depends on the program) than just a few short years ago. We, as staff and administration, cannot do it alone.  Open Door Mission is blessed to have compassionate, caring and giving donors and volunteers that come along side to help those less fortunate.

We often say the only constant at Open Door Mission is change…change in a very good way. People’s lives are being changed every day as they hear the gospel and find hope, not just food and shelter. Change as new donors and volunteers come to support the mission in so many ways. Change as new programs are developed to strengthen and help those seeking help and refuge for a life of hope not despair.  Change as we add more staff to meet growing needs. Those of us at Open Door Mission are blessed to work here. We all have stories to tell of God’s marvelous working in our lives, in the lives of those that we serve  and the lives of our donors and volunteers. Please read the Open Door Mission Blog and discover the greatness and goodness of God’s grace at the mission. Please come and share as together we change lives. ~maggie cope
