Mission Statement:


Inspiring hope, providing opportunities, and removing barriers for those in recovery or being released from incarceration, we work alongside those dedicated to building a healthier, more productive life.

Vision Statement: 

■ We assist and empower those struggling to build a new life after incarceration and beginning the journey toward wholeness in recovery. We live life shoulder to shoulder with our clients as mentors and encouragers. 

■ We find resources to equip and empower each person to accept his or her role as a responsible, productive family member and citizen. 

■ We listen, we offer counsel; we help discover purpose, and the next right choice. We earn the right to do so by accepting each person where he or she is, and seeing too much potential to allow him or her to stay there.

Join us on tomorrow, May 5for the Big Payback!  Please click this link between midnight tonight and midnight the 6th to donate to Doors of Hope: 


If all of our Doors of Hope supporters, godmothers and fans came together for one day of giving (large and small contributions gleefully accepted!), we could fund new classes and initiatives for the ladies and men of DoH and Project Braveheart and possibly purchase some much-needed equipment for our classroom (think computers, books and supplies for instructional programs.)

This is a 24 hour online giving event sponsored and coordinated by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. It is designed to increase philanthropy in the midstate area. The goal is simple – to inspire Middle Tennesseans to come together, show their pride in their community, and contribute to the life-changing work of local nonprofits.  Doors of Hope is one of the designated agencies this year. This is a fun and easy way to give to one or more local agencies of your choosing. The Big Payback has a secure website and provides authorized, secure giving forms on each participating nonprofit’s website as well.


All it takes is YOU!  For more information you may go to the Community Foundation’s website:  www.thebigpayback.org.  The Big Payback starts at 12 a.m. on Tuesday the 5th of May, and continues until 12 a.m. on the 6th.


We will be posting more information on our own website as well:www.opendoorsofhope.org.  Thank you so much for all you do!
