Open Door Mission Encourages Holiday Giving
Committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty, Open Door Mission (www.opendoormission.com) provides critical support to those here in the Omaha Metro community. The demand for Open Door Mission services for homeless and near-homeless individuals and families has grown significantly this year, up 77.4% from what was provided in 2016. Open Door Mission is seeking financial support to underwrite the additional expenses incurred through expanding its offerings to accommodate the need through online and mailed donations through the month of December. This will also help to ensure these services are available in the coming year for all who need them. Gifts of any size will help make an impact and are very much appreciated. Over 90% of every donation to Open Door Mission goes directly to guest services.
Open Door Mission meets the basic needs of individuals and families while inspiring HOPE for lasting change. Each day, Open Door Mission’s campus offers 816 safe shelter beds to homeless men, women, and children and serves more than 2,300 hot, nutritious meals to feed the hungry. Homeless preventative measures are offered every day to more than 400 people living in poverty, empowering individuals and families to remain in their own homes.
