- HOW YOU CAN HELP
2015 Year in Review
This year has brought continuing growth to Opening Doors along with the opportunity to serve more clients. Global situations led to an influx of refugees, and then an overwhelming show of support for our refugee resettlement work from the community.
Our donors, sponsors, volunteers, supporters, and interns are the foundation of our success. The time, money, and expertise shared with us is invaluable and we hope that you continue to support us as we take on more challenges next year.
Please read on to see what all of your support has helped us accomplish this year:
As the refugee crisis escalated into one of a global scale, we began receiving refugees from Syria, and increased news coverage. All our refugee clients receive the resources they need to succeed in our community.
Immigration Legal Services
In its fourth year, Immigration Legal Services continues assisting clients seeking low cost immigration assistance. We also received a funding contract from the California Department of Social Services to provide free services and outreach to low-income communities.
Survivors of Trafficking Program
We provide all the necessary services survivors need to recover. We have also continued our success as administrators of the Sacramento Rescue & Restore Coalition in its anti-trafficking efforts, increasing our outreach capacity online and through targeted outreach efforts.
This program has been developing local businesses, stimulating local economy, creating jobs, and helping clients establish a financial stronghold. Our program assisting refugees with starting childcare businesses has continued to mitigate the shortage of affordable, culturally appropriate childcare.
The MoneyWork$ Program continues to help underserved local residents develop financial management skills. Many go on to achieve other goals, such as growing or starting a small business or continuing their education.
At the core of our organization are interns and volunteers that make our work possible by sharing their heart and giving us their time. Many of our programs wouldn’t be possible without them.
