Your Trusted Reentry Service Center in Wausau, Wisconsin
On Friday, November 26, 2010, Open Door opened their doors for the first time. It was 5:00 a.m. and we had 3 volunteers. The coffee was on and slowly the guests started trickling in. We were able to offer them weather appropriate clothes, toiletries and a hot cup of coffee and conversation.
Fast forward almost 10 years, we still open our doors at 5:00 a.m. Sometimes there are people waiting at the door when our volunteers arrive. Besides clothes, coffee and conversation; we offer hygiene products, use of a computer, use of a telephone, a chance to sign up for a mentoring program or attend life skills classes.
Creating a lower rate of recidivism in the state.
We Provide a Personal Approach to ReEntry
We have gone from serving 400 people our first year to serving over 4000 in 2016, and over 7,000 visitors in 2019.
A hub of resources. We have become a clearing house of community resources to help the newly released meet their immediate needs and help them achieve their long term goals.
After ten years, our outreach has broadened, our services have expanded but our focus is still the same.
We provide the newly released with a second chance and the tools to be successful.
Over 10 Years Reputation For Excellence
With a professional team and the latest innovations and most advanced technology, we’re proud to give our guests the best resources possible.
