Transitions into Community
Lack of trust is a tangible road block for many marginalized women. At Open Door we use backpacks of personal hygiene products and emergency clothing to let women know that we are available to them with no strings attached.
As women are being released from Corrections, Open Door is a community connection. Many women have little or no access to support in the community. Open Door provides a safe place for women to land where they will find staff who are supportive, encouraging and helpful in the release process. We help facilitate the transition back into the community as well as provide long term support.
