Our mission is simple. We strive to provide support, both physically and spiritually, to the homeless, disadvantaged, and working poor of our community.
The Tioga County Open Door Mission is a faith based organization and is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The Mission and its second location, The Red Door, have provided housing, clothing, food and other financial assistance to the disadvantaged and needy families in Tioga County and surrounding areas since 1968. The Mission supports the shelter and all of its outreach programs through the proceeds from its two thrift stores, grants, and private donations.
Donations accepted Monday through Saturday from 9AM-4PM.
Our Outreach Department, which includes our food pantry, is open 10-Noon, and 1-4:30 every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The food pantry is also open every Saturday from 10AM-Noon.
Our Thrift Store is open Monday-Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: 8:30am-5:00pm, Thursday 8:30-8:00pm

Our renovations are now complete! In lieu of a food pantry, a bag of groceries is available to those in need the third Friday of each month from 10AM-1PM. The new community room offers meeting space for recovery, community, and non-profit groups. Another Door Opens can also be rented for religious services, family events, community meals, rummage sales, and weddings. We look forward to sharing this space with the community!
