Southfield (CW50) – The Open Door Ministry at Fort Street Presbyterian Church has been serving the community for almost 53 years. The ministry was started in order to open door to people who needed food, clothes, resources, and somewhere to go to be with other people.

Trish Hubbel, Director of the Open Door Ministry joined COMMUNITY CONNECT Host Lisa Germani to discuss what the ministry is doing to continue serving the community.

Career Closet is a service where every Tuesday career clothes are put out to help people looking for work dress appropriately for interviews. They receive their clients from partnerships with organizations that are helping people get into the workforce. These people include those in recovery programs, getting out of prison, or in a workforce training program.
