In 1989, a small group of concerned citizens came together to address health care for individuals that had no access to medical care in our community They solicited volunteers, equipment, funds and a facility and opened the Open Door Health Center,Inc. Since it's beginning, the agency has served thousands of individuals and the request for health care assistance continues to grow.
The Open Door Health Center, Inc. saw the need for a health care program in the Michigan City Area Schools and in 1997 it expanded its services to begin the Open Door Adolescent Health Center. The school based comprehensive health and mental health center began in the Alternative High School. It was eventuallymoved to the Michigan City High School, where it resides today.
