We are a nonprofit 501c3 organization EIN 84-2925423
Our story begins, Feb 17th, 2018 as God called our hearts to His work. We then applied and received our nonprofit status on September 19th, 2019. Why are we 5 Stones Open Door? Because of the lived experiences of our 5 dear friends who lost their lives to Trauma and Abuse. Because of their lived experiences we have set our sights on creating group sessions and classes that address trauma, neglect, and abuse. To date, we offer group sessions such as Mending the Soul for those who have experienced Trauma and Abuse. Now our classes include Your Choice 4 Life Relationship Builders and the IMPACT Youth program. Within the next 5 years, we want to integrate Addiction, Health and Wellness, Tutoring, and Work experience.
