Our Advocacy Program 

We all need to support the social work profession as it addresses issues our nation faces—including the need for more mental health services providers.

People become social workers because they have a strong desire to help others. Social workers have a hearty sense of social justice and follow a Code of Ethics that calls on them to enhance human well-being and help meet the basic human needs of all people. They are particularly attuned to the needs and empowerment of people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty.

Social workers are uniquely qualified to help people in their own environment, by looking at all the aspects of their life and cultures. They work to ensure your personal well-being, to prevent crises, to counsel individuals and families, and to help build strong communities.

Clients and co-workers talk about Erika's impact

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for the incredible work Erika does as a social worker and mentor. This is my second semester as Erika’s intern and her commitment to making a positive impact in the lives of others is truly commendable. The empathy, compassion, and dedication she brings to her role creates a ripple effect of hope and support that extends far beyond the surface.

Thank you for being beacon of light for those in need and for embodying the values of social work with such grace. Your tireless efforts do not go unnoticed, and they make a meaningful difference in our community.

I have been a client at Open Door for a very long time so I know Erika as long as she has been there.  She started helping me personally when I became homebound. Now she calls me every month to see how I am doing, and to arrange for groceries to be delivered.  She is such a nice person, very kind and always looking to help in any way.

I'm so grateful for Erika and Open Door, she has been a constant in my life.  Every month I receive food for myself and for my dog. He's like my child, and buddy, lol, sometimes the only one I talk with during my days and evenings.  Thank you again, it's all greatly appreciated, God bless.

My son and I moved here 4 years ago. I had used all of my money to move here for medical reasons. We had no food or any way of getting food at the time. I was given information about Open Door and was placed in the hands of Erika. That was the best thing for me and my son who has special needs. I thank God and Erika along with Open Door for helping us all of this time because we are still in need of help. My son and I thank and bless all of you.
