Your Donations Mean Hope to Those in Need.

The most amazing thing I have witnessed while working at the Lydia House is seeing the amount of donations the wonderful people in this community donate to us on a daily basis.  So many of the individuals we serve come here with either just the clothes on their back, or just a few items to get them by. Upon our first meeting I always check with my guest to see what items they need and 9 times out of 10 Open Door Mission can help them get everything they need, all due to the wonderful people who donate to our facility.

Not only do the donations go towards the adults residing in our facility, but also to any children residing here.  It is so heartwarming to be able to provide a mother and her new born baby with clothing, diapers, wipes, bottles, blankets and much more. But none of this would even be possible without God working in the hearts of the people in our community.  Many of the individuals who donate items to our facility don’t get the opportunity to meet the individuals residing here or to see the smile on their face when they are able to get new clothing, shoes or hygiene products.  I would like to speak for them and for myself and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your donations, because without you we couldn’t do what we do on a daily basis.
