A lack of resources can lead to poverty and homelessness as well as push those already dealing with hardship deeper into desperation. Many DOORWAYS clients arrive with nothing, or very little. Prolonged unstable housing or homelessness create a temporary environment, and poverty is accompanied by a multitude of resource barriers. However, without access to services and goods, it is difficult to survive, much less thrive.
For DOORWAYS clients, the door to resources opens the moment they are securely housed. Our care coordinators immediately begin uncovering client needs and providing referrals to services and goods. This includes assistance enrolling in benefit and food stamp programs; food banks and meal services; medical and pharmacy delivery services; free phone program; free legal services; home furnishings; vital records and documents; community schools for their children; educational opportunities; and more. Vulnerable and disenfranchised, our clients are empowered by resources for their journey to improved health and self-sufficiency.
Corporations, organizations, friend networks, and individuals can all provide resources for DOORWAYS clients. To review resource needs, please visit our GET INVOLVED section.
If you are a DOORWAYS client in need of assistance, please contact your housing coordinator during office hours (Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).
You may also call the United Way 2-1-1 program, a 24/7 connection to agencies and resources to help citizens live their best lives possible.
