Our Mission:  Open Doors, a coalition raising awareness by building bridges within the community and acting as a unified force dedicated to reducing and preventing homelessness.       


What We Do:  The Open Doors Homeless Coalition’s outreach is the lower six counties of Mississippi, Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Pearl River, Stone, and George. Within this region, ODHC builds collaborations between homeless service providers, advocates, municipality representatives, businesses, faith-based organizations, and persons who are homeless or formerly homeless. ODHC is itself not a service provider, but is an advocacy organization and coalition of persons dedicated to strengthening the six-county region’s services to homeless persons and to preventing the horrors of further homelessness in the future.


Join Us:

Open Doors Homeless Coalition has adopted the goals of Opening Doors: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness: 

Finish the job of ending chronic homelessness;
End homelessness among veterans by 2015;
End homelessness among families with children by 2020;
Set a course to prevent and end homelessness in our community.

We will achieve these ambitious goals by collaborating together with a variety of stakeholders and implementing evidence based practices that are proven to generate results. 

Please contact Mary Simons at for more information.
