Partnership with others
Part of The Open Door's vision is to bring services from other organizations to our drop-in centre, where clients are more likely to use these services. They do not have to spend hours waiting to be served or suffer the embarrassment of being in an office carrying all their belongings in a shopping cart.

Face to Face provides counselling, temporary proof of residency, a mailing address, and a listening and intervention service.

The Open Door continues to work with The Canadian Mental Health Commission on the At Home Project, and we have started to see this project bear fruit. Several people who use the services of The Open Door have been housed in apartments through the project. About 60% of the individuals who have interviews for the At Home Project are subsequently granted an apartment.

A social worker from the YMCA comes to The Open Door once a week. The social worker sits and talks with the clients to identify their specific needs and aids them in exploring a suitable solution.

The organization Équipe de Médiation Urbaine has started to work with The Open Door. They help clients find peaceful resolutions to their conflicts, either with other clients or within the community at large.

Group Harmony visits the Open Door to reach clients above the age of 55 who need help dealing with addiction and toxic substance abuse.
