Our Model


Open Doors recognizes that the best way to end homelessness is to stop it before it happens.  Our prevention programs assist area residents as they gain housing and find financial stability and success.

Experiencing Homelessness

Open Doors works with adults and families with children experiencing homelessness by providing emergency shelter, case management, and hot served meals.  Open Doors recently added street outreach and employment services to ensure that every person experiencing homelessness in the greater Norwalk area has access to housing and income.


To rapidly move people from homelessness to housing stability, Open Doors provides case management and affordable and deeply affordable housing for those transitioning out of homelessness.
