OPEN DOOR AND NEXT DOOR SHELTERS
December 3, 2009
As President of The Kalamazoo County Thrivent
Board we have adopted first 2 bedrooms in a house in 2007 and then a studio apt. in 2009 for one of the working poor in our county. We have had such a rewarding experience with Open Door/Next Door and be able to share with these deserving folks a residence of their own has been truly inspiring. The philosphy of ODND that someone is willing to work they deserve a decent,safe place to live is helping to give people their self respect and dignitity back.
It is also a great testement to an outstanding organization when the receiptents give back to others that need them. We hope to continue to work with with ODND in the future
