Open Doors helps enable success for the people, property partners, and community partners we work with every day

Alicia:

Everything was going well for this hardworking, single mom until the daycare where she worked closed its doors. Without a paycheck, Alicia lost her car and her family was evicted from their home. With no extended family support, Alicia was forced to withdraw her kids from school and move to a homeless shelter in Buford.

Lauren:

When Lauren, a young single mother, “aged out” of the foster care system at 21, she was forced to make a terrible choice. She could either give up her son to the foster system or they could be homeless together. Lauren was determined to be with her son, even if it meant living in shelters.

Maury:

At age 63, Maury was on a fixed veteran’s income of under $10,000 per year. Even with careful management, his income could not possibly stretch to cover his basic necessities. Forced to make hard choices, Maurey spent more than one winter without heat or electricity. That all changed when he received housing assistance from Action Ministries and Open Doors.
