Open Door Mission Foundation provides the following programs and services:
DoorWay Drug and Alcohol Recovery, Urgent Care,
Disciple Partners, Convalescent Care Center, and Education and Training.
DoorWay Drug and Alcohol Recovery: Employs a multi-level approach to drug and alcohol recovery. It is an intensive, 9-month, scripture based program designed to help students overcome drug and alcohol addictions. When men enter the program, they spend 20 hours a week in a comprehensive curriculum of self-discovery, life-skills, and spiritual renewal, and Bible study. They also participate actively in mentoring, counseling, and family reunification programs. Served up to 100 men a day in 2012.
Urgent Care: Offers emergency food and shelter for people who would otherwise have none. On average, they serve over 200,000 meals each year and provide over 65,000 nights of shelter. When Hurricanes Katrina and Rita left thousands of Gulf Coast residents homeless, Open Door Mission became a distribution center for critical supplies like food, water, and clothing.
Disciple Partners: Offers vocational development, career and technology education, and community and accountability skills to men who have already overcome a chemical dependence or who never had one. Served up to 80 men a day in 2012.
Convalescent Care Center: Provides recuperating men a clean, secure place where they can recover from accidents, illnesses, or surgery. It is the largest free respite care facility in the Houston area, and it provides health maintenance, transportation, legal assistance, and mentoring. Served up to 25 men per day in 2012.
Education and Training: Assists students with their education in a variety of ways. It is often the stepping-stone for those interested in pursuing a post-secondary education. They also offer a comprehensive GED program. On average, approximately 60 men a day receive some type of educational assistance in the Mission's Education Department.
