Wheels 4 Hope

Did you know that Open Door Mission accepts donated vehicles?

When you donate a vehicle you are providing a huge blessing for an Open Door Mission program graduate and their family!

Will you prayerfully consider donating a running vehicle to Open Door Mission?

Vehicles can be donated at the Timberlake Outreach Center or any of our three Family Outreach/Donation Centers (Council Bluffs, Elkhorn, South Omaha). For more information about vehicle donation, contact Amy Harvey at(402) 829-1511 or

Due to the rising costs in fuel, transportation barriers, lack of storage costs, Open Door Mission can no longer accept mattresses and will no longer schedule pick-ups of furniture in the community.
