Our programs and services are solution-oriented and ministry minded, including the operation of a homeless shelter, serving daily meals, distributing non-perishable and fresh food, obtaining permanent housing, and acquiring and maintaining permanent jobs.
Open Door Ministries was established in 1995 as a merger of Urban Ministries and the Open Door Shelter.
