Unexpected Heroes

Volunteers Transform Lives While Enriching Their Own


Volunteers are the unexpected heroes of this organization, especially for the Refugee Resettlement Program. Our volunteer interns and refugee mentors go above and beyond for refugees, acting as a community guide for recent arrivals.

Community Conversation:

Anti-Trafficking Community Takes Action


Human trafficking exists in Sacramento, but it wasn't long ago that the issue was relatively unknown to many in the area. Now, the shocking prevalence of trafficking has overwhelmed our imaginations and tested our ability to respond. How can we begin to intervene with the complex web of factors that sustain trafficking? One local coalition is mobilizing the community and needs you to Take Action.  


2014 Year in Review


This year, the community really showed their support

 of survivors of trafficking, refugees, and other underserved. Your support allowed us to help more refugees than ever before, start a new childcare grant program for refugees, and coordinate the Sacramento Rescue and Restore Coalition. 




At Opening Doors, we enjoy sharing the changes brought about by the generosity and hard work of our supporters, clients, and staff. Victories like the ones reported this month have a positive impact in our community and in our clients' lives. Thank you for sharing in our joy!
