Thanks for visiting us at the Opening Doors website! We are a prison ministry. That means we work with men and women who are incarcerated and are returning to their communities. We work with families who have been torn apart by the separation of prison. We are a faith based agency, which means that we are people of faith. Please explore the site and learn more about our work and perhaps where you might fit in. This site will be changing and updated with new information so stop by often.

In Him who is our Hope,

Opening Doors of Ohio, Inc. a 501(c)3 organization PO Box 281 Lewis Center, Ohio 43035-0281 mobile 614-804-6068 phone/fax 206-337-7941
The United States now incarcerates more people than any country in the world.

85% of the people in jail have been there before.

66% of those in prison will likely go back.

In Ohio 1 in 25 adults is in prison, jail, probation or parole or somehow "in the system".

This tragedy has an impact on everybody, the victims of crime, the offender, and the children who grow up at greater risk, families, and communities.

A question for You!

Can this picture change?

Can people change?

We at Opening Doors believe deeply that people can change. We invite you to explore our website and perhaps join us in pursuing the goal of seeing individual lives changed. Please consider joining us in prayer, financially supporting this ministry, volunteering with us or participating in some of our training.

We would like to hear from you!  Send us stories about change in your life.  We would like to post some of them here under Vision / Impact.
