OUR SERVICES

At Open Doors, we strive to help those who don’t see other options. We have several programs available to help adults improve their situations and prepare their children to avoid similar circumstances as they get older.

By providing these programs to adults and families with or without children, Open Doors staff works to reduce child abuse, neglect and family stress.

The purpose of Family Support is to help educate parents and prevent child abuse. Services include parent education, the respite and crisis nurseries, and therapy.
