We're in this together even when we're apart.
Thank You for Giving!
Special thanks to everyone who donated on #GivingTuesdayNow! With your support, we exceeded our goal of $5,000, raising more than $6,000 online!
If you didn't get a chance to give on Tuesday, we still need you. As crisis adaptationsโ€”like moving our Safehouse clients into hotelsโ€”become Doorways' status quo for the foreseeable future, your support remains critical to sustaining our ongoing response.
How You Help Our Community
Doorways' programs and services are even more critical during this crisis, when abuse is likely to increase, and many are struggling to make ends meet. You ensure we are able to respond to our current clients, and to anyone seeking our support, 24/7.
Because of YOU
In March and April, we welcomed
๐Ÿ‘ฉ 12 new clients ๐Ÿ 
into our shelters. We served a total of
๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ 117 adults, youth, and children ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ
in shelter and housing the last two months, including
8 housed in hotels ๐Ÿจ
in April due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Meanwhile, we received
๐Ÿ“ž 173 calls to our hotline
