Thank you, Dr. Charlene Black! She selected the ministries of Open Door to be the recipient of the proceeds from her book sales celebrating the ministry of United Methodist Women. Her generous gift will provide the Elizabeth Learning Lab for children and youth served in our Mathews Promise Academy as well as Bibles for distribution by our chaplain. We thank Dr. Black and all who purchased one of her books. The check presentation was made during the South Georgia Annual Conference of the UMC.
Congratulations to Billie Dodson our 2017 Open Door Community House Volunteer of the Year! She has volunteered with Circles in Columbus since the very beginning helping with the meals, planning and decorating for special events, etc. We are so grateful for her faithful service all these years!
Leadership Columbus hit all the right notes when they volunteered to transform our “ceramics room” into a beautiful music room for our Youth in Unison students of the Mathews Promise Academy. This functional and professional space brings us one step closer toward realizing our dream of one day having a children’s orchestra. We invited the community and had a delightful ribbon cutting ceremony. Many thanks to Leadership Columbus for making this happen for us and to volunteer music program director Tracy Leopard for her work every week with our children!

We hope you are enjoying our new and improved website! Over the past few months, we have worked hard to provide you a website that is easier to use and to find the information you need as quickly as possible. Whether you are a member of a group looking for a volunteer project, new to the community and seeking to learn more about poverty initiatives in our area, or a friend seeking assistance, we at Open Door seek to provide you with quality and effective services.
On the website you will find our contact information. Please let us know what you think of the new website! If there is information you don’t see here and would like to see let us know!
Thank you for your interest in the ministries of Open Door Community House.
Since 1935, Open Door has expanded to meet the increasing needs of the community, which has responded by opening its heart to those in need. Focusing on long term solutions to poverty, Open Door serves through four community ministries, three homeless ministries, and Circles in Columbus.
