Opening Doors is an annual celebration in Des Moines, Iowa.
We acknowledge the difficult journey from homelessness to hope with a banquet and awards ceremony featuring winners, in several categories, who are on their journey from having experienced homelessness to stability by way of hope. We want to celebrate the people involved, in every aspect of that journey.
We celebrate the community of service and housing providers and support agencieswho dedicate theri time and effort to making the journey possible.
We are raising money with the sale of doors, donations, and sponsors to contribute to the Dean Wright fund, which is used to provide assistance in ways that other funds can not, because it is our deepest belief that humans do not run out of chances.
