Reentry Service Center for Marathon County Released Inmates

Our office is located in Wausau since 2010. With a team of highly-qualified and experienced volunteers and support staff, we have developed programs to assist released inmates.

Your Trusted REENTRY SERVICE CENTER in Wausau

The Open Door is a community based collection of volunteers dedicated to providing service, support and a helping hand to currently released inmates.

You need, and deserve, the best re entry services from highly qualified professionals and volunteers, dedicated to providing you with an exceptional level of service using the most advanced technology available. That’s why we’re here to help!

OVER 10 YEARS EXPERIENCE AS A  REENTRY SERVICE CENTER

The Open Door meets people at perhaps their greatest time of need. We understand that our ability to connect with people is entirely based on the volunteer efforts of all involved.

Those in need include people coming out of incarceration both from the Marathon County jail and from the state prison system.

The Open Door takes pride in partnering with other service providers in our community.

At our office, we believe that our guests deserve the highest quality personalized, comprehensive care in a comfortable and stress-free environment.

Success Stories

“As I came out of jail, I was scared and did not know what to do. I went to Open Door and they helped me with basic needs such as clothing and hygiene. Then they started showing me the resources in town and now I know that I will make it.”

Katherine

“Upon my release, I had a hard time finding my feet. Open Door gave me the time and resources to get my life back in order. They supported me when I got my feet under me again.”
