Proudly Serving Our Community Since 1974!

THE OPEN DOOR IS CONTINUING TO SERVE
Even thought the centre is currently closed due to Covid-19, we are continuing to serve clients during this pandemic.
The door to God's love is never closed.
At the open door, we continue to serve and love and care for those who are lonely and frightened, people who are ill, people trying to cope with poverty and isolation, and people with spiritual hunger and material needs such as food.
Due to the Covid-19 crisis it is necessary for us to put many of our programs temporarily on hold, and we are not open to receive people , we remain in contact by phone receiving many calls to the open door every day and calling the vulnerable in our community – praying and ministering to them and providing help for their needs as we are able and also connecting them to the resources available in our community.
Our staff and some volunteers are at The Open Door preparing some emergency food bags for delivery or pick up outside the mall and to receive deliveries.
There is such a great need for people who are isolated to hear our voices and to be reassured and prayed with. This is a huge part of our ministry right now. We are getting help and food and resources to people but the ministry to them seems even more important . We are praying with people constantly and letting them know that we care about them.
Medical problems still need attention and children being at home with single parents can be a real challenge. Even if people manage to have some money the prospect of lining up at a grocery store with three young children is daunting.
Life's many challenges continue and seem much more difficult to face for many people who were already in crisis. Loneliness has already been the greatest form of poverty for many even before this. We have many seniors and other people living on their own. Contacting and praying with people has taken on an even greater importance. Helping people to know that God is with them and that people care about them helps so much.
We have lovely stories to tell of God's provision and our lovely encounters with people.
A huge thank you to our churches and everyone who is helping us at the Open Door to reach out to those in distress . Thank you for your financial donations, and donations of food, masks, gift cards, and the many other ways that you have helped.
Please note that we are unable to accept clothing at this time.
Thank you for partnering with us.
