Open Door Community House relies on volunteer support to raise awareness, serve our clients, provide leadership at annual events, and participate in a variety of special projects. For more information on opportunities for volunteer service, please contact Ann Hart. Volunteers working more than once are required to have a background check for $20.
Your support helps Open Door Community House continue to serve those most in need of love and hope. We cannot continue to do what we do without generous contributions of goods, resources, and time from our community.
