October 25,2022, in Columbus, OH – OpenDoor-Columbus was announced a grant recipient of A Community Thrives, a grantmaking and crowd-funding program from the USA TODAY NETWORK and a part of the Gannett Foundation. OpenDoor-Columbus will receive a $50,000 grant for the recruitment and training of community volunteers as well as a $10,000 grant on the local level. Ten small groups of 6-8 volunteers will share their social and relational capital with ten women supporting their transition to a drug free life. OpenDoor-Columbus needs 60-80 volunteers who are willing to make a year commitment to accomplish this goal. Community Thrives supports non-profit organizations with projects focused on community building and has helped to contribute more than $17 million since 2017. This year, A Community Thrives engaged participants in 45 states. OpenDoor-Columbus was named one of 16 winners. OpenDoor-Columbus brings Hope, Help, and Healing to women who are in recovery from substance use disorder supporting their transition to a drug-free life. As women leave incarceration or treatment, they are at high risk to return to unhealthy situations, overdose, or death. A Community Thrives grant will support women while they are in this vulnerable period of time by engaging in supportive relationships with community volunteers. OpenDoor-Columbus is honored and humbled to receive the generous financial support from Gannett. We are grateful for the confidence they have in us to make an impact on our community. “We are proud of the work OpenDoor-Columbus has done to enhance Columbus, Ohio.
