Making Grants To Fund Programs
We invested grant dollars to support The Open Door in launching their first Manhattan program.
Why We Love This Affiliate
Only 1 out of 10 immigrants connects with a Christian when they move to the U.S. We love seeing our volunteers befriend the marginalized by sharing life with them, helping to equip them, and praying for them.

Before volunteering with The Open Door, I didn’t know how to share life with this growing immigrant community, but I’m having the best time experiencing how the love of Jesus so easily breaks down language barriers.
