Mission & Vision


Open Door is a regional, patient-centered health care organization that provides services including education, prevention, diagnosis and treatment services to those who have or are at risk for Sexually Transmitted Infections, including HIV/AIDS, in addition to the greater LGBTQ community.


We envision a world where HIV does not exist, the community has ample resources to test and treat sexually transmitted infections without the fear of stigma, and the LGBTQ community has equal access to care without discrimination.
