DOORWAYS is proud to be one of the official charities for the 2015 GO! St. Louis Race Weekend! TEAM DOORWAYS is the name of our team and we are recruiting people to join us and help benefit a wonderful local non-profit that responds to the poorest and most vulnerable of the community: the homeless. We hope you will join our team, or donate to the cause!
DOORWAYS is an interfaith non-profit organization which provides housing and related supportive services to improve quality of life and health outcomes for people affected by HIV/AIDS.
Safe affordable housing, which is critical for diverse individuals during various phases of health and illness, has become a pressing need. DOORWAYS serves all people affected by HIV/AIDS regardless of age, color, creed, physical or mental disability, ethnicity, familial status, gender identity and expression, national origin, race, religion, pregnancy, sex or sexual orientation.
Through direct service delivery and the efforts of identified program partners, DOORWAYS’ programs and services benefit those affected by HIV/AIDS in the 15-county St. Louis metropolitan area, 62 under-served counties in outstate Missouri and another 55 under-served counties in outstate Illinois.
The organization recognizes a special responsibility to respond to the poorest and most vulnerable of the community: the homeless. Many of DOORWAYS’clients have no income at all when they enroll in service, yet no one is denied access to DOORWAYS’ housing because of an inability to pay. Reflecting the picture of the community’s most at-risk, 100% of those who benefit from DOORWAYS’ services live below federal poverty guidelines, 74% are African-American, 32% are women, and fully one-third are children. DOORWAYS’ primary clients range in age from 8 to 72.
