Open Door Guest Testimonials
Murray was homeless for a while after his marriage and business fell apart. Alcohol abuse and criminal activity sent him into a downward spiral, and he was a regular visitor at Open Door. Eventually he got the treatment he needed, and today he frequents Open Door to encourage others. He says, “I love to give back because I was given to by others. I got a second chance, and I will not forget what a difference it made in my life.”
Charleswas homeless and struggling when he first came to Open Door about 20 years ago. Today, he has an apartment and a job but still stops in to chat with the volunteers, and depart kind words of encouragement to those still struggling. Charles says Open Door has always been a safe and welcome haven, especially during his darkest days. He comes to lift others up the way he was lifted up so many years before.
