BackgroundOpen Door Mission is a Gospel rescue mission that meets the basic needs of individuals and families while inspiring HOPE for lasting change. Our desire is to be a bridge for people trying to reclaim the basic necessities of life, restore their God-given dignity and hope, and rejoin the community as full and active participants. Candace L. Gregory, president/CEO, is a national advocate for the homeless. She uses her extensive experience in community prevention programs to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. She longs to build a bridge of hope to others and develop innovative ways to make it happen through partnerships and collaborations.
Brag LinesEach day, Open Door Mission’s campus offers 816 safe shelter beds to homeless men, women, and children, serves over 2,100 hot, nutritious meals, and provides homelessness prevention measures to over 1,000 people living in poverty. Every month, Open Door Mission partners with an average of 1,185 volunteers logging over 6,000 volunteer hours, making a vital difference right here in their community.

Pay it ForwardFrom September through November, Open Door Mission expects to provide more than 213,100 hot, nutritious meals to the Heartland’s hungry -- and an additional 72,000 meals in December. We invite you, your family, church, or business to get on board to help supply canned vegetables, canned fruit, instant potatoes, canned meat, and boxed meals so we can stock our warehouse for the holidays and winter months. To help provide food, shelter, and care for the homeless and poverty-stricken in our community, please visit our website.
