The Open Door Mission

5803 Harrisburg Blvd.
Houston, TX - 77011

A Christ-centered emergency relief and rehabilitation shelter dedicated to meeting the needs of men in our community who are homeless addicted destitute and disabled.

Open Door Mission's DoorWay Substance Abuse Recovery Program
To rescue men enslaved by substance abuse disorders, co-occurring illnesses, and homelessness, the Mission's 7- month residential DoorWay Recovery Program (DoorWay) provides services to heal body, mind and spirit. The goal is to assist each student in making a successful transition into stable recovery and a lifetime of self-sufficiency and independent living.
The DoorWay Program provides intensive and supportive treatment services and The Mayfield House provides transitional living aftercare treatment for up to an additional 6 months to employed graduates of the DoorWay Program. The Mission's Social Services Department caseworkers assist the students while in residence and post-graduation by reducing or totally resolving the issues that have been mounting over years of ignoring medical, dental, legal, past taxes, and child support. The DoorWay Program has 148 beds and the Mayfield House can accommodate 16 graduates.
