We are a community that believes in Jesus, loves God and people.

From its inception, The Open Door has been known for providing warm on-site meals to those in need. In 2016 we served over 33,000 meals.
We provide carryout food boxes for immediate relief of individuals and families experiencing a food crisis. We were privileged to give out 1,120 in 2016.
We help families who are under financial duress with rental and utility assistance. Each recipient is interviewed as to their qualifications to receive this aid.
We offer pastoral support and encouragement to those who come through our doors. Often a listening ear is what our clients are craving for.
