OPEN DOOR AND NEXT DOOR SHELTERS
November 29, 2009
Open Door and Next Door Shelters really cares about its residents and guests. It provides not only a place to stay and meals, but individualized support services, including help
finding a job, saving money for an apartment,
encouragement to complete GED, etc. The staff are extremely caring and helpful. Shelter guests are expected to make a plan with the staff to work towards self-sufficiency. The Residence Community provides permanent housing for low-wage workers, and involves them in the
planning of resident activities.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide housing and support to many more members of the Kalamazoo community who have nowhere to go, and help them become self-supporting and further their education.
