At Open Door Mission, we have worked for 20 years to provide shelter, day center services, meals, and recovery help to homeless men, women, and families. Whether our clients are Christian or secular, an individual or a family, we offer programs to address what causes people to be homeless as well as the services necessary for their immediate well-being. We are proud of the role our homeless shelter volunteering services have played in Northern Colorado. We believe it is our duty to help those in need and to improve, by our own acts of leadership, how homeless people are treated by society. We want to be facilitators for the future - helping people understand what homelessness and shelters are all about. We want to Open The Door to the homeless and to the community at large.

Many times these people have made a commitment to change their lives, yet they find it very difficult to start back in the work force. Open Door Mission provides counseling and assistance for these individuals to help them meet their goals to become constructive citizens.
