Penny Bolton, owner of Penny’s Closet, hands over the keys of her minivan to Red Door Catering Manager Kala Prosser and Doors of Hope CEO Maridel Williams. Penny learned of Red Door’s need for transportation at a recent “Taste and See” event held to promote Red Door, and quickly offered her vehicle for the cause. Thank you so much for your generosity and commitment to our community, Penny!

Volunteers Needed
to Help with Meals

Monday night is Community Night for our clients at Doors of Hope, when everyone gathers for the weekly meeting and meal. 

Volunteers are needed to provide this meal each week. We are looking for a meal team to take one Monday a month. Meals can be as simple as soup and sandwiches, or casseroles and salad. We strive to provide a healthy well-balanced meal, so fruits and vegetables are encouraged!

Please contact Jackie Miller at jmiller@opendoorsofhope.org for more information. For dates and to sign up to provide an Entree, Salad/Bread, or Dessert for 15 people, please click on the link below.
Community Foundation Grant
Meet our partner...
The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee

Doors of Hope has received a grant from The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. These funds will be used for basic needs for newly-released women, such as food, shelter, and clothing. It will also enable us to provide medical checkups and dental checkups as needed and assist with obtaining legal documents necessary for employment.
The Community Foundation awarded more than $2 million in grants to 346 nonprofit organizations as part of the 2017 annual discretionary grantmaking. The Community Foundation awards  discretionary grants annually from its unrestricted and field-of-interest funds through an open application process to Middle Tennessee nonprofit organizations addressing community needs and benefiting the well-being of citizens through valuable programs and innovative services. The Foundation connects generosity with need in order to build a stronger community for the future. To learn more, please visit www.CFMT.org.
