About this Shelter
Provides help for those in need, whether through our emergency services help, through our Father's Table Food Kitchen, or through the Open Door Shelter, an emergency shelter for men.
The Mens Shelter program at Open Door Ministries is a facility designed to house adult homeless men on a temporary basis. First preference is given to the High Point resident followed by the Guilford County resident. Clients go an entrance screening before being accepted to the facility. They must be 18 years of age and cannot be a sex offender. The shelter offers 66 beds for the general populations, and ten beds for treatment program and six beds in the overflow dormitory. Additional mattresses are set up in the cold months to handle the overflow.
The Men's Shelter at Open Door Ministries is the only homeless shelter that serves adult men in High Point. Those that come to our program benefit from a variety of programs at Open Door Ministries such as the Fathers Table, Arthur Cassell Transitional House and the Education and Job Readiness Program. Our goal is to serve the whole man, with focus on spiritual, physical and social development.
