Open Doors is a community hub that offering 15 community based, volunteer-driven, programs that work to make Burlington more resilient. Open Doors helps people with community resources, food, and offers programs for seniors, parents, youth, and children.

Our volunteer model acknowledges that we are all those who are served, and we are all those who receive. This model provides many benefits: social inclusion, community resilience, dignified service, inclusion and stronger programming.

Lately , our efforts  have enhanced our “one stop shopping” model by increasing access to existing programs and partnering with local agencies to co-locate their programs within our facility. We have worked to recognize and meet the needs in our community.
