The purpose and mission of DOORS is to reduce recidivism in our communities by serving as an advocate for individuals who are reentering society after being incarcerated.
We understand the many hurdles to overcome and that opportunities may seem unattainable to formerly incarcerated persons. DOORS offers the keys to successful reentry by serving as a one-stop reentry resource and client advocate offering assistance to formerly incarcerated persons with clothing, dental, medical and mental health assistance as well as educational and legal advice. Other avenues of personal assistance include housing, job readiness skills, job referral, transportation access and much more.Our goal is to reduce the chances of ex-offenders returning to prison by removing barriers they may face once released and offering the keys to success.
Each formerly incarcerated person is assigned a caseworker who assesses the individual's needs through four separate assessment tools, develops a highly personalized plan of action, and works with other nonprofits in accomplishing the stated goals. Client follow-through and staff follow-up is vital to the process as each individual follows their path to the future.
If you are someone who desires to successfully reenter the community, please call us! If you are a nonprofit organization who would like to partner with DOORS in this wonderful mission, please let us know. By working together, we can accomplish great things!

Just like the devoted postal worker, "neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail..." could keep close to 300 criminal justice professionals and other interested individuals passionate about reducing recidivism in our Texas communities from gathering for this year's Symposium. Thanks to all who helped make it a resounding success!

Unlocking DOORS Board Member Honorable Jerry Madden Weighs In On Bi-Partisan Support For Prison-Reform. Watch the video.
When a crime is committed, we all pay – families are broken, tax dollars are needlessly spent, and victims are created. We thank you for your support and interest in DOORS. We are proud to stand alongside you and everyone who is committed to reducing recidivism by assisting those who are so desperately in need of services and expertise. We have a very large task ahead of us; but, TOGETHER, we can find solutions, meet on common ground, and partner to create a reentry system that is seamless and worthwhile for all.
