Everyone needs a stable place to live.
Partners, Friends, Residents and Community Members:
In light of recent health concerns surrounding the Coronavirus and taking into consideration the recommendations of Governor Whitmer as well as local and federal health officials, our offices are closed. We will reopen when the current situation allows. This is not a decision we have taken lightly but believe it is in the best interest of our community to take these precautionary steps.
If you have an emergency or need to contact one of our staff members, please email our Executive Director,
Stephanie Hoffman at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Statement of Solidarity
Open Doors Kalamazoo is all about community and right now our community, along with so many other communities around the nation, is in pain. We witnessed two public health crises – a global pandemic and the national police brutality crisis. In both crises, Black and brown people have endured the worst of these attacks. The continual and unwarranted deaths of Black men and women by law enforcement is unacceptable and our communities are demanding change. We stand in solidarity with African-American people around the nation and especially here in Kalamazoo. Black Lives Matter. While we do not condone violence, we understand that people are justifiably angry, as are we. People are demanding change, and we also believe change is necessary for our community and our nation, to heal, grow, and prosper. We are committed as an organization to being inclusive in all areas of diversity, so we recognize the need to continue to educate ourselves, listen and learn. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by recent events, and long-standing injustices. We are with you.
