Offering Hope, Help, and Healing to women in recovery from addiction, supporting their transition
to a healthy, drug-free life.
OpenDoor-Columbus is a grassroots, boots on the ground, nonprofit organization serving the most vulnerable women
in our community, women in recovery from substance use disorder.
OpenDoor-Columbus provides one-year of free services to women as they transition
from treatment and/or incarceration to a drug-free life.
A group of six to eight community volunteers make a year commitment to act as a team of mentors, encouragers,
and advocates for each woman while cultivating relationships that last long beyond the year.
This transitional relationship fills the void that exists between incarceration, treatment, or a court ordered program
to sustainable recovery.
We need your help! We need you to open your heart. We cannot do this without YOU!
“There is no greater gift to yourself than the gift of helping others. OpenDoor-Columbus allows you to help someone help themselves, making the gift last a lifetime!” - Theresa, Volunteer

OpenDoor-Columbus was founded by three moms...
Leslie Kristoff, Rachel Muha, & Tammy Foeller brought together by the pain caused from substance use disorder. Two of us desperate for our daughters, Samantha & Stephanie to stop using drugs and one devastated by the death of her son Brian, murdered by men high on drugs.
OpenDoor-Columbus is our response to the opioid epidemic that has ravaged our community.
Offering Hope, Help, and Healing to women in recovery from addiction while supporting their transition to a healthy & drug-free life.
Three moms. One vision. Many goals.
Our lives brought together by sadness, pain, heartache and now... HOPE • HELP • HEALING
