Capital Campaign-Phases One & Two

Donate online


To serve increased patient demand for integrated patient services that are affordable and accessible, Open Door Health Center (ODHC) leadership created a Master Plan for the building in 2009. Through federal, state, and foundation grants, the first phase of the project was completed in 2012. A subsequent federal grant award of $3.8 million has allowed ODHC to make significant progress on the Master Plan. Your contribution will help ODHC complete the facility renovation and expansion to transform the care ODHC provides to the community.


The current capital project cost is $10 million and prior to the campaign, Open Door Health Center has received federal and private funding for $7.05 million of this project.
