a word from the director

The Open Door is a 501c3, non-profit, Christ-centered ministry whose doors opened on Mother's Day 1985. Being in the community of Ocean County for over 30 years has given us the privilege of serving many amazing people.


Those facing an unplanned pregnancy, struggling with a past-abortion, wondering about dangers of casual sex, trying to be the best parent they can be to their baby or in need of baby items, can come to us for help.


All our services are able to remain free of charge because we are supported by folks who see the evidence of how God works in the lives of those who come through our door.


And those that do visit us are always blessed because in some way, on some level, they have been met here by the One that died for them, Jesus Christ.


It is because He lives that we work and serve at The Open Door.


It is an honor to do what we do.
