Open Door Mission Celebrates Program Graduates on Saturday, June 27, 2020


On Saturday, June 27, 2020, Open Door Mission will host a special graduation ceremony for men and women who are graduating from the New Life Recovery Program, a residential program committed to providing men, women and families the tools needed to become self-sufficient community members.  Eight men and seven women will be donning the cap and gown and sharing their Stories of Hope.  Four men will be graduating from our Journey to Work Program.  For most, it will be the first time they have experienced a cap and gown graduation.

“Graduation is always such a time of celebration.  With our graduates, they are changing their lives which hasn’t been easy, especially during this time of COVID-19 adding extra challenges,” says Candace Gregory, President/CEO of Open Door Mission.  “Our graduates will be sharing their stories about how they overcame obstacles.  We are proud of their hard work.”
