About our Partnership
Homelessness and substance abuse are on the rise in our country, and as a result, people are suffering and families are falling apart. Open Door Ministries has a long history of working in inner city Denver with hurting people and has had an incredible impact in seeing lives turned around.
The First Fruits Fund was looking for an organization that was doing this work in our own backyard, and is excited about partnering with ODM. Not only can we provide financial sponsorship to single mothers going through their year long residential program, but we can also provide practical help in refinishing their floors in some of their older homes. We have also sent volunteers to help paint and remodel one of their houses that serves single moms and their kids.
Open Door Ministries seeks to impact the City of Denver by providing:
Providing transitional housing to individuals escaping homelessness, abuse, and addictions. ODM owns 6 or 7 buildings on or near Colfax and Marion Street in Denver, CO.
Kids & Youth
The Learning Center and Downtown Youth Center support working families by providing quality education founded on high academics and Christian character development. Provides structure, support, and discipleship for elementary, middle, and high school students.
The Street 2 Life Print Shop offers transitional employment and Christian discipleship to those coming off the streets.
Various services taking place every week, including a food bank, meals for the community on Saturdays, community building services for the disabled, and family room meals.
