The Men's Shelter program at Open Door Ministries is a facility designed to house adult men on a temporary basis. Clients are screened through Interactive Resource Center for same day shelter placement. IRC staff contacts the Shelter Case Manager to determine if the client meets eligibility criteria for admission to the shelter. The shelter offers 62 beds and a six bed disability dormitory.
2012, the Open Door Ministries Men’s Shelter served 559 individual men.
This resulted in a total of 22,204 bed stays, throughout the year. We
were able to acquire 106 picture Id’s, 69 birth certificates and 83
social security cards allowing clients to have proper identification as
they begin to rebuild their life. We also dispersed a total of 1800 bus
tickets to 391 of our clients so they can take care of medical problems
and look for work.
