As Norwalk and surrounding neighborhoods takes precautions around the Coronavirus/COVID-19, everyone at Open Doors continues to be committed to the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, staff, and larger community.

Team members at Open Doors are following public health recommendations and have firm procedures in place for cleaning and disinfecting spaces, washing hands and using hand sanitizers, and practicing other protective habits. For the moment, we have paused in-person volunteering to help reduce everyone’s risk.

Open Doors is pausing all donations except for food donations until a date TBA in order to help manage risk and continue to provide crucial services to those in need. We are also closing the community closet until it is safe to reopen

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us. Thank you for your ongoing support and for helping to keep our community safe!
