For nearly 40 years, Open Doors has been a resource for people dealing with poverty and homelessness in the greater Norwalk area. With the support of our community, we help our neighbors on the path to housing stability.
Why are we here?
We’re not a destination. We’re a foundation to build on.
We welcome clients with open arms
By offering them the resources they need to recover,
The tools they need to change,
And the confidence they need to stick to the plan.
At the heart of a welcoming community, we draw from every corner
To help people discover their individual purpose and power.
To take control of their future.
To navigate from needing shelter to owning success.
We are here to inspire, support, and guide.
But the strength is theirs.
The pride is theirs.
The path belongs to them.
We'd love to have you learn more, get involved - hope to see you soon!
How We Help
We approach homelessness from start to finish, focusing on Prevention, the Experience and providing Stability.
Each program at Open Doors is designed to provide supportive services that bridge the gap between homelessness and housing.
We are in the business of helping people – and it’s their stories, their successes – that serve as the greatest testament of our work.
