Open Door staff meet people at their point of need in Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties in Upstate New York, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, or creed.

We provide practical, workable solutions to physical, spiritual, and relational brokenness by providing hunger relief and shelter. The Open Door also provides emergency and transitional housing through our Life Path Program to the homeless with services that offer encouragement for daily living. We also partner with our community to help provide case management, counseling, connection to community resources, medical screenings, substance abuse recovery programs, budgeting, life and job skills training, transportation, and relevant advocacy.
