Open Door Mission

About Open Door Mission

Open Door Mission offers life-changing programs to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Lydia House and the Garland Thompson Men’s Center also offer life-changing recovery programs to address the causes of homelessness such as abuse, addiction, or the inability to obtain and maintain steady employment.

At ODM's Timberlake Outreach Center and our Family Outreach & Donation Centers (Elkhorn and Council Bluffs), monthly assistance for food, clothing, diapers, furniture, and appliances is available for needy families.

ODM also maintains 41 two and three bedroom apartments for men, women, and families who may benefit from living in a stable environment for an extended period of time. Residents can live in a supportive housing environment while working or attending school full-time.

“I helped out my community by securing donations for the Open Door Mission's Love Your Neighbor Silent Auction Gala . I enjoyed meeting and working with the various donors. I enjoyed sending out Thank You notes to donors to let them know how much their help is really appreciated. I also enjoyed seeing the fruits of my labor and attending the Gala and help out.”
