As a volunteer, donor and supporter of the Norwalk Emergency Shelter (aka Open Door Shelter and Manna House Soup Kitchen), I have seen firsthand the good work and invaluable services provided by the staff. They care about people in need and do their absolute best to provide temporary assistance and to offer counsel and services to help their clientele regain their footing in society.

I was surprised by the low overall rating, but see that one old and misguided review is dragging down the average. This is a homeless shelter operating on a shoestring budget. They are understaffed and overworked, but do their absolute best. The food provided through the soup kitchen may not be gourmet, but it is prepared in a Health Department certified environment by staff and volunteers who care.

The shelter is now under new management. The new executive director is extremely passionate about the residents and has a strong clinical intervention plan. He is working hard to
straighten out years of neglect & abandonment. We need the residents of Norwalk to come together in support of our new director & give him the chance to make the Open Door Shelter the very best any shelter can possibly be. A place that provides a temporary home while providing clinical, psychological, educational, emotional support & job training opportunities, before they are sent back to independence.

i visited this shelter rescently and right away i noticed the difference since the new CEO came in two weeks ago, he is friendly, smart, intuitive, client focused and eager to institute structure and organization. He is a big bodybuilder guy with gentle demeanor and has interest in bringing treatment to the shelter. You should go visit this guy. awesome
