What does OpenDoors of Asheville do?
OpenDoors of Asheville connects local children living in multi-generational poverty with an active, individualized network of support and Opportunities for education and enrichment. Their missions is to "break the cycle of poverty through education, one child at a time."
They value education and believe that "when students are appropriately resourced, inspired and respected, they become active, engaged, lifelong learners who are college and/or career ready. Students from poverty can focus on their academic pursuits and overcome challenges, with success, if they have year-round academic support and equitable opportunities."
They value enrichment and believe that "opportunities beyond the classroom increase student’s ability to discover their “spark” and actualize their potential. Providing students access to a broad range of experiences enables them to acquire social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills necessary for classroom and career growth."
They value an engaged community and believe that "when we invest in our children they, in-turn, invest in themselves and strengthen the community. Children growing up in poverty thrive when we build connections between diverse individuals, families, neighborhoods, groups, and organizations."
