Open Door Ministries

Open Door Ministries’ mission is to show mercy, build community, and make disciples for Christ in urban Denver as an outreach of Open Door Fellowship Church.  They exist to provide practical help and hope to people in urban Denver who are homeless or low income. The Family Room is a place where people in the ODM community can fellowship and where the homeless can more easily access our resources and facilities.  The Family Room is largely dependent upon donations to keep it supplied as we offer hospitality and a safe place for homeless and all persons in our ministry.  Another key part of the Family Room is empowering people in our community to give back.  To learn more about the Family Room and other opportunities to serve at Open Door Ministries, click here.
