Open Door After School Program


Our goal at Open Door After School Program is to provide a safe and comfortable environment to help children thrive. Our wish is to create an area in our community that provides a welcoming environment. We want to create opportunities to aid in development, such as growing deeper friendships, providing assistance in educational experiences, hands-on experiences and providing fun, active chances to help aid in growth. Our philosophy is to meet every child where they are at.
