15th Anniversary Community Partners


Honourable Antoinette Perry, OPEI
Lieutenant Governor of Prince Edward Island

Congratulations to Open Door Outreach on the celebration of your 15th anniversary of giving hope to incarcerated women of Prince Edward Island. Through your effective ministry, you are helping them to believe in themselves enough to empower them to build better lives.

Félicitations à « Open Door Outreach », une organisation humanitaire chrétienne de Charlottetown qui fête son 15e anniversaire d’existence en tant qu’organisme de bienfaisance canadien enregistré.

Positive role models in the family, teachers, mentors, spiritual advisors, and so many more people inspire us to believe in ourselves, motivating us to discover our strengths and capabilities. They ultimately help us to believe in ourselves enough to fulfill our potential and to contribute to our society. Unfortunately, since childhood, many women have not experienced enough nurturing and positive supports and, consequently, have lived a destructive lifestyle. They also lacked the guidance to instill in them the need to keep a personal balance in their lives; physical, spiritual, emotional, and social. By journeying with them through your intervention services: Personal Mentoring, Transitions into the Community, Chaplaincy, and Group Programs, you are helping them to rediscover their self-worth and believe in themselves enough to start the process of bringing about a personal transformation. You are helping them to let go of the cycle of crime and leading them to more functional and fulfilled lives in better harmony with the world around them.

Vous ouvrez effectivement des portes aux femmes incarcérées et dépendantes pour leur donner la chance de pouvoir transformer et reconstruire leur vies et de pouvoir établir des relations saines ainsi que d’établir une connexion productive avec le monde qui les entoure.

On behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, I wish to express my appreciation to you and commend you for carrying out your honourable mission of empowering Island women to transition to a healthier and more productive lifestyle, a life where they can be true to themselves. “Faith for Change”, on your logo, acknowledges that you believe that faith in a Higher Power can transform the impossible into the possible.

Meilleurs voeux pour un avenir productif et mes souhaits pour plein succès dans tous vos efforts.

I wish you continued success in your essential and life-giving ministry.

Honourable Antoinette Perry, OPEI
Lieutenant Governor of Prince Edward Island
