The Door Is Open is a drop in centre located at 255 Dunlevy Avenue, in the heart of East Vancouver. The Centre supports the needs of hundreds of less fortunate people in the downtown east side. Many of our guests have compounding difficulties such as drug and alcohol addiction, physical and mental handicaps as well as maturing life stages and many other impairments.
At the Door Is Open, we provide food, clothing, a warm and safe environment and as much useful information as possible to facilitate the ease of life for street people that so many of us take for granted.
Our consistent service, positive role models, and unconditional acceptance are what have allowed us to develop a trusting friendship with our clientele. It is our hope that this environment will provide a good example for these people and give them the chance to improve their lives.
