When Doors Open, Lives Change

Message From The President and CEO

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!

After hearing about the great reentry efforts occurring within the Texas
Prison and Parole Systems (TDCJ), attendees, all passionate about reducing recidivism (re-offending) in our Texas communities, were educated as to the true mission and purpose of the:

TO BUILD AND ROUTINIZE THE COMMUNITY-BASED REENTRY
PLATFORM IN TEXAS that will provide for a smooth and seamless
transition for all of those with criminal backgrounds - whether coming

DOORS: Unlocking DOORS to Reduce Recidivism

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.
