Open Door Ministries of High Point is a Christian ministry that meets immediate needs for food, shelter and emergency assistance, and assists people as they heal and reclaim their lives.

Open Door Ministries was established in 1995, as a merger of High Point Urban Ministry and Open Door Shelter. High Point Urban Ministry was begun in 1969 and provided assistance for food, clothing, and financial needs. Urban Ministry also operated a soup kitchen that served a lunch meal (Monday – Friday). Open Door Shelter started in 1987 and provided a homeless shelter for men, women and children.
