HOW WE HELP
Life Enrichment Center
ID Program & Advocacy
We have helped thousands of people successfully get State IDs. We do not issue identification, only the Michigan Secretary of State can issue an ID.
Our Patron Advocates will partner with you and help make connections to jobs, housing, and other area services.
Open Door Women’s Center
The Women’s Center provides a safe haven for women in crisis during the overnight hours. 40-80 women stay in our building each night. Women must be 18 years of age or older.
Our new next-door store, Thrift on Div, is a beautiful storefront full of affordable clothing and accessories.
Open Door Bakery gives women currently or previously staying in the Open Door Shelter a chance to give back by using their talents to serve the community through baking.
Hygience and Respite Center
Our Life Enrichment Center provides time and space for self-care and basic hygiene needs. Take a shower, get a haircut, wash laundry, and more.
