ThankYouThank You!

Thank you to the Boeing Employees Community Fund for providing support for our emergency housing program. During bitter winter months, our ability to place homeless adults and families affected by HIV/AIDS into safe housing is critical. The need continues to rise. We are very grateful to the Boeing Employee Community Fund for helping us live our mission.    

For the past year, women in our Residential Program have had the opportunity to explore financial topics about banking, debt, and spending. This focus was possible through funding from the Women's Foundation of Greater St. Louis. Thank you for empowering our residents with financial knowledge that will assist them on their road to stabilizing their households and expanding their confidence!    

Many thanks to our friends at Bar: PM ! James Pence and Chad Wick, the owners of Bar: PM, again named DOORWAYS to be the recipient of the bar's anniversary party, and donated all tips and money raised from the silent auction, 50/50 raffle and drag show totaling over $6,000. Additionally, they began a personal care items drive at Thanksgiving that ran through the New Year. This month they delivered a busload of donated items to our office. We can't say thank you enough! We appreciate everyone who contributed!
