Our Mission is: To transform lives by, Supporting, Teaching, Outfitting, and Preventing future abuse through group sessions, classes, and job training.

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, Sexual assault, and Domestic Violence. 

To date: we offer group sessions such as Mending the Soul for those who have experienced child abuse, Keep Stepping from Domestic Violence to Life, and Your Choice 4 Life Relationship Builders.

We have recently started our 6-month Recipes 4 Change program which combines all of our programs and includes the work experience.

Coming soon: IMPACT Youth program.

What we know is that 5 Stones Open Door is created with a heart for those who are hurting, troubled, and traumatized. We want to hear you through your voice, see you for who you were created to be, and affirm, that yes, it happened to you, but it is not who you are.
