With your support, Doorways can welcome new families into our care, and care for those who are with us today.
Back to School
During the COVID-19 Crisis
Back-to-school season may look different this year, but we still need your help. Especially in times of uncertainty, we believe that planning for the future can be reassuring and empowering.

This is where you can help: by preparing kids at Doorways to start the new school year supplied and confident. Sign up to sponsor a child today !
Even though many students will begin the school year virtually, they still need supplies, especially now that home has become a classroom for many families.

Generous sponsors like you provide all the kids in our programs—from babies to high schoolers—the tools they need to succeed in school and daycare. It goes beyond pencils and notebooks: a full, brand new backpack and school clothes—which families at Doorways often cannot afford— can be signs that the future is bright and exciting. Thank you for your support!
Your COVID Impact Report
Back in March, we asked for your support as we began to navigate this unprecedented time, to enable us to adapt and adjust Doorways' work in unprecedented ways.

With your support, in just weeks, Doorways shifted our programs and service delivery to meet the needs of current clients while adhering to CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

We hope you enjoy learning more in Doorways' COVID-19 Impact Report .
